These transition to chapparal, where ceanothus, coffeeberry, sages, manzanitas, buckwheats, and deer grass provide a dramatic display along with coast live oak, valley oak, and black oak. Further into the garden, a waterfall, stream, and pond are beautifully worked into the landscape along with rushes, and willows. Benches and tables throughout provide opportunities to stop and enjoy the garden. Bring your bag lunch and make this your lunch stop on the tour.
