The plant palette for this project is an eclectic mix of drought tolerant plants including California Native Plants, succulents, and subtropical cycads and palms. Some of the subtropical plants are also drought tolerant, proving that you don't have to use a lot of irrigation water to have a tropical look.
Some of the more unique plants include:
Aloe 'Carpinteria Gem' - Carpinteria Gem Aloe
Aloe plicatilis - Fan Aloe
Cercis occidentalis - Western Redbud
Cistanthe grandiflora 'Jazz Time' - Rock Purslane
