Perry Garden (4 photos)

Garden #56, San Jose


Showcase Features: The focus of the front garden is a mound with ceanothus and native sage surrounding a Western redbud grown as a standard – a single trunk tree.

Other Garden Attractions: You won't believe this native garden replaced a dead lawn less than a year ago! A permeable flagstone path meanders among native shrubs, grasses and perennials including manzanita, California rush, Idaho fescue, island snapdragon, buckwheats, blue-eyed grass, and island alumroot. A Ray Hartman ceanothus standard marks the porch corner. A California live oak will provide shade for the parking strip as the garden develops.

Gardening for Wildlife: Hummingbirds, butterflies and bees are frequent visitors with the abundant food and shelter in this garden.
