Thursday, January 22, 2015, 7:30 p.m.: New, rare and unique native plants for your garden, with Antonio Sanchez: Native plants are growing in popularity, and it seems you can find a few common plants in almost any nursery.  Names like Ceanothus 'Yankee Point', Island Snapdragon and Deer Grass are quickly becoming familiar to many gardeners around the state, but what about the other over 5000 native plants that have either never been tried in landscapes or have very little history of being used in gardens?  In this lecture, Antonio Sanchez (Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden) discusses many new and unique native plants for the garden.  From hard to find California desert and alpine plants that are only now becoming available in nurseries to plants from Northern Baja California that only a few folks have had access to, Antonio will discuss dozens of plants and their possible uses in your garden.
