Climate-wise California is like the Mediterranean -- France, Spain, Morroco, Italy and Greece -- plus parts of Australia, Chile and South Africa, where rainless summers host beautiful plants of all kinds. Search this gallery for plants on San Diego's "Nifty 50" and UC Davis Arboretum All-Star lists, and see why Green Life Studios favors Mediterranean- and California-adapted plants in its designs.
Cape HoneysuckleTecomaria capensis (Tecoma capensis)
Cape Honeysuckle with its finely cut dark evergreen leaves stands out in many San Diego and Northern Coastal California gardens as a privacy screen or camouflage for the "good neighbor" fence. Its deep orange flowers hold up against the brilliant color of Bougainvilleas, and the clear blues of Cape Plumbago, while sharing their dramatically low water requirements too. South African native. Low waste if not used as hedge. South African native.
