Gayle Anderson was live in Venice and Santa Monica with a preview of this weekend’s 12th Annual Theodore Payne Native Plant Garden Tour, which is a two-day self-guided journey through 47 of the region’s most beautiful and inspiring private and public landscapes.
The 47 gardens on this tour contain at least 50% native plants. Each garden is a labor of love, a place created in harmony with southern California’s climate, soil, natural vegetation and native wildlife. The gardens are divided into two groups: one open Saturday and the other open Sunday. At each location, you’ll meet garden owners, designers and docents. Use the descriptions and icons on this site to plan your personalized excursion, choosing 4-7 gardens to visit each day at a leisurely pace.
