Fall Native Planting Season
By growing native plants, we have the power to support wildlife, save precious resources and connect more deeply with our local environment — all while creating beautiful landscapes that celebrate California.
Fall is the best time to plant native plants and this season, we have more ways than ever to bring native plants home. Local CNPS chapters across the state are hosting plant sales — find one near you! What’s more? Bloom! California, a statewide effort to increase the sale and use of native plants. Over 100 nurseries offer Bloom! California plants and we’ll be sharing tools, tips and tricks to help you get growing with California native plants.
