Northern California: 5 Plants for Spring Color

Top 5 plants for Northern California gardening

Indigo Frost™ Agapanthus

Our new bi-color Agapanthus are real stunners. New foliage and bright blooms emerge each spring and continue to bloom until fall.

‘Meerlo’ Lavender

Lavender allardii are the most heat, humidity, and water-wise lavenders we grow. These vigorous plants hold their beautifully variegated and highly fragrant foliage, and sport pale blue flowers in summer. Dry leaves for sachets and moth repellent.

Platinum Beauty™ Lomandra

Lomandras look like grasses, but are actually tough, low water perennials. ‘Platinum Beauty’ is the first green and white striped variegated form, and looks great with succulents and other low water use plants.
