Scrophularia California

Bee plant (Scrophularia californic)

Bee plant is an easy-to-grow deer resistant plant that has reddish flowers in the spring. It is fine with sun or shade, little or abundant water, and sand to clay soil. Bees love the abundant nectar, birds love the seeds, and Chalcedon Checkerspot butterflies are attracted to the foliage. This fabulous habitat plant is a great addition to any garden.

California buckeye (Aesculus californica)

California buckeye (Aesculus californica)

California Buckeye is an iconic small tree common on dry sunny slopes and in shady canyons. Creamy fragrant flower spikes in spring make it look like a giant candelabra! They attract bees, butterflies, and humming birds looking for nectar. In addition, Celastrina butterflies lay eggs in the buds. It is a symmetrical tree with a round crown in youth, but with age its truck develops beautiful sculptural shapes. Fast-growing and long-lived, it is the perfect choice for a spot next to a lawn or creek, but will do well almost anywhere.
