California Native Grasses (and near grass plants) in the landscape

Grass is grass right? If that's the case, why do we spend so much time trying to get rid of bermuda grass? California has many native species of grasses that grow in a variety of conditions and environments. Come hear about the benefits of using native California grasses in your home landscape. California native grasses use little to no water and are low maintenance while enhancing the aesthetics of your garden. They also provide special habitat benefits for native bees and other beneficial insects. You may even go home with a stipa pulchra; the official California state grass.

This workshop will be presented at Lyngso Garden Materials in San Carlos. Visit the Lyngso events page.
