  • Green Acres Nursery
    Green Acres Nursery maintains more than 600 varieties of plants and trees on more than 15 acres, most of which are tailored to southwestern landscapes. White, ornamental star jasmine bushes ($9.78 for 5 gal.) will withstand drought while inviting visiting noses to whiff their ambrosial scents, while vibrant, purple bougainvillea ($4.20 for 1 gal.) will florally fill gaps in any fence to keep opossums from trespassing. Since the ordinary backyard aquascape has deflated Mylar balloons for lily pads and aged pitas for skipping stones, make your pond superb by adding naturally luscious philodendrons ($49.40 for 15 gal.). Green Acres Nursery cultivates each greenling on-site in its nursery, caring for them from the time they're a tiny bud to their first day of kindergarten.

  • Mission Hills Nursery
    Mission Hills Nursery draws from a long tradition of horticulture, as it was founded in 1910 by renowned green thumb and urban-green-space advocate Kate Sessions. Year after year, rows of roses, shrubs, and vegetables have sprung up under the staff's doting hands and dangled morsels of plant food. A section for gardening accessories equips yard workers with trowels, thorn strippers, and organic fertilizers to motivate crops without scourging them with caustic chemicals. In addition to tending to its plants, Mission Hills Nursery's staff arranges landscapes with garden-design services and teaches clients to arrange their own through gardening classes.

  • Buena Creek Gardens
    The serene 4-acre Buena Creek Gardens fills local gardens with more than 5,000 varieties of flowering plants and showcases botanical innovations in demonstration gardens. An octogenarian pepper tree shades visitors as they stroll through the entryway, leading them to shelves replete with flourishing leaves and gardens that demonstrate the art of attracting avian life, beneficial insect life, and the migrating flocks of biographies from recently closed bookstores. One-gallon Sweet Kate plants ($7.95) and Poorman's rhododendron shrubs ($8.95) adorn yards and gardens with collars of delicate jewel-toned blooms. Lush trays of spiky echeveria succulents ($5.95?$19.95) sport verdant crimson-tinged leaves alongside steadfast resistance to drought and stoic perseverance when suffering through gardeners' dated comedy routines. Sinuous Medusa Head succulents ($15.95) pepper landscapes with sprawling tentacles and mesmerizing floral centers, and garden sculpters can summon armies of lepidopterae and beneficial insects with a vigorous 5-gallon Golden Purple butterfly bush ($24.95). Florid peafowl strut through the grounds and flash their feathery frondescence, attempting to grab the attention of the swarms of butterflies and hummingbirds flitting through the air.
