California Native Gardening cover

In celebration of California Native Plants Month, we’re pleased to welcome Helen Popper to Orinda Books to discuss California Native Gardens. In this month-by-month guide to gardening with native plants, Popper shows how by following California’s unique, untraditional seasonal rhythm, home gardeners can have success incorporating native plants in their gardens––whether traditional, Japanese-style, or formal. With recommendations on where to view native plants, this year-round guide nurtures the twin delights of seeing wild plants in the garden and garden plants in the wild.

Helen Popper is a professor of economics at Santa Clara University.
