Hi, Thought this might be a good audience to ask. I am looking for places in SF, especially non Rec and Park land, that still support native plants.

I just saw this page for the first time, and thought I'd respond to your posting (though it's rather old---I hope this reaches you !) The eastern part of Mt Davidson supports a nice diversity of native species (in addition to lots of aliens.) In spring you see Mission Bells (Fritillaria affinis), Footsteps of Spring (Sanicula arctopoides), Checkerbloom (Sidalcea malvaeflora), and many other herbacious treasures---even the rare San Francisco Campion (Silene verecunda), one of the very few places left in SF where it grows, so tread lightly :-). Shrubby attractions include lots of Huckleberry (Vaccinium ovatum), Serviceberry (Amelanchier pallida), Salal (Gualtheria shallon) and others. Other rich botanical locales nearby are San Bruno and Montara Mountains, in San Mateo County. Happy botanizing! Aaron S.
