A secluded private garden in the west of San Francisco, divided into visually distinct microclimate sections – a backdrop of Camellias and Azaleas accentuated by Geraniums, Heucheras, Morning Glory and CA native California Poppy, Seaside Daisy and Douglas Iris in the center of the garden; a Japanese Aralia, Bear’s Breech and other perennial shrubs in the shady part of the garden; a collection of ferns under the Red-Leaf Japanese Maple; and a vibrant selection of more Hummingbird and pollinator favorites like Fuchsia, Hebe, Sage, Lavender, and CA native Ceanothus and Sticky Monkey Flower on the warm sunny side.
