Growing Natives Garden Tour 2014

Percolating Pond Native Garden (10 photos)

Garden #23, Sunnyvale


Showcase Features: This attractive front garden combines attractive drought-tolerant natives with a dry streambed and a collection pond for rainwater. Rainfall runoff that used to end up in the sewer system is now returned to the earth and helps restore the water table.

Other Garden Attractions: Deer grass and California Fuchsia give the garden structure and visual interest. Meanwhile, blooming shrubs and perennials such as manzanita, penstemon, buckwheats, and Calfornia fuchsia are color accents year round.

Gardening for Wildlife: The California fuchsia is a hummingbird magnet. All other California native plants attract beneficial insects which, in turn, attract birds through the seasons.
