The Native Plant Garden Tour:
A SoCal Tradition

The Native Plant Garden Tour is a two-day, self-guided tour across Greater Los Angeles. Since 2003, more than 700 public and private landscapes have participated in the Native Plant Garden Tour. Ranging from coastal container gardens to experimental urban homesteads to, each unique design offers beauty and critical habitat for wildlife. The gardens on this tour contain at least 50 percent native plants.
