Nursery Profile: Tree of Life Nursery, San Juan Capistrano

Nothing is worse than planning your native garden only to find that your local nursery doesn't carry the plants you need (or worse doesn't carry natives at all!!).  With our Nursery Profile series we hope to introduce you to some of Southern California's greatest native plant specialty nurseries so that you can not only find the plants you are looking for but hopefully become inspired to plant even more natives (that parking strip would sure look nice with some native grasses in it!)
Our first nursery is one of Southern California's landmark native nurseries, nestled in the foothills of San Juan Capistrano, Tree of Life.

A wholesale as well as retail nursery Tree of Life not only has a great supply and variety of native and drought tolerant plants but they also have a great bookstore located in Casa 'La Paz' and display gardens throughout the nursery.

Check out their website for more information!
