California fuchsia, Epilobium canum, is another easy native perennial and a favorite at Sherman Library & Gardens.
For a big impact in full sun and low water try white sage, Salvia apiana, for the aromatic foliage and nectar source.
A California native garden classic is Cleveland sage, Salvia clevelandii, for its showy flowers. Its fragrant ashy green leaves are obovate and rugose.
