Going Native Garden Tour 2011

Bryanton Condominium Garden (5 photos)

Garden #11, Palo Alto


Showcase Features: Beautifully planted condominium garden and parking strip features an attractive collection of native trees and shrubs, harmoniously integrated with a few drought tolerant non-native plants.

Other Garden Attractions: Condominium yards have a deserved an earned reputation for being boring and devoid of wildlife. Bryanton Condominium is a shining example for what's possible instead. The parking strip features deer grass and fescue, drought tolerant and attractive year round. The front yard shows a combination of some drought-tolerant meditarrenean climate plants (rosemary, Australian fuchsia) and many natives.

The front entry design is especially attractive and welcoming. Noteworthy are the trees and tall shrubs: a squirrel-planted oak, several toyons, and a California buckeye. Other native plants include ceanothus, currants, mahonia, and other shrubs and perennials, easy to care for yet beautiful, a joy to look at year round.
