You are invited to enjoy Patricia’s native garden on a typical late spring day.  The garden, a secluded 1-acre wild escape on the slough, is located west of Davis. Started in 2005, it now features about 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!

  • The many geophytes in the garden should be blooming
