$15 for $30 Worth of Native Plants and Flowers

The nonprofit nursery cultivates plants and flowers native to California, including wildflower annuals ($3), manzanitas ($10 for a 1-gallon container), California poppies ($4.50), and California strawberries ($8).

Grow Native Nursery in the Veterans Garden

Every month at the Grow Native Nursery in the Veterans Garden, guests can mingle over a freshly brewed cup of worm tea, a nourishing concoction produced by the nursery's worm population. Thankfully, the green-thumbed staff members don’t prepare the unappetizing beverage for humans, but for thirsty plants, who voraciously soak up the liquid fertilizer’s nutrients when mixed with water. Worm Tea Sunday is but one example of many gatherings on the Grow Native Nursery's calendar. The staff also hosts workshops on topics ranging from basic horticulture to beekeeping. These events epitomize the thriving communal spirit at both the Claremont and Westwood locations, where plant experts eagerly field questions from visitors.

Day-to-day, they tend to a menagerie of flora, all of which is native to California. Poppies, lilacs, and sage grow alongside strawberries, which drink from ecofriendly water systems that aim to conserve resources in home gardens. The proceeds from the nurseries fund research and conservation efforts at their home base: Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden.
