You are invited to enjoy Patricia’s native garden on a typical hot summer day. The garden, a secluded 1-acre wild escape on the slough, is located west of Davis. Started in 2005, it now features more than 400 species and cultivars of California native plants. Visit Patricia’s Garden Ambassador Profile to learn more about this garden, access a map, view a plant list, and take a virtual tour!


  • How plants adapt to heat and drought. Irrigation strategies.
  • Summer blooms and interest.
  • Observe seasonal maintenance and discuss plans for fall planting.

Stop by any time between 7 am – 11 am RAIN or SHINE for the self-guided garden ramble. Maps available for use onsite.
