Liven Up Your Winter Garden
For most of us, thoughts of winter conjure visions of landscapes void of color, filled with the bare limbs of deciduous trees and semi-dormant shrubs. We also think winter is the time to relax about landscaping. While this may be true in the east, winter is actually a very important time for most Southern California landscapes and is the perfect time to add unique combinations and varieties to your garden. In the west there is no excuse for a drab winter landscape. In fact, many plant varieties are at their best this time of year, and they can enhance winter landscapes with beautiful textures and color. Our favorite plants for Winter here at Deep Roots are Australian, South African and New Zealand natives. They are perfectly adapted to our climate and soil, are drought tolerant once established and and are easy to grow. As they are from the Southern Hemisphere they are blooming now and are looking their best.
Fremontodendron: Fremontodendron californicum, or California Flannelbush is one of the most spectacular of the native California shrubs. It is a fast growing evergreen shrub with fuzzy, flannel-like leaves and abundant, large yellow blossoms that bloom in the spring. Under ideal conditions, it can reach 20 feet tall and 20 feet wide in five years. Planting in a sunny spot, in well-draining sandy soil. Needs little watering once established.
Leucadendrons – Also called Cone Bush or Cone Flower. Native to South Africa and part of the Proteaceae group of plants, Leucadendrons are a large group of evergreen trees and shrubs that have beautiful winter foliage ranging from silver-gray to dark red with brightly colored bracts that are used as cut flowers by florists. Some bracts when fully open look like flowers.
Each year more and more varieites become available. Many have beautifully colored stems with different colored leaves. They are large plants - some grow to a height of 6 or 7 feet and 5ft wide and so are suitable for growing at the back of the flower bed. Smaller varieties are also available. Grow them in full sun to part shade. They make a dramatic and beautiful year round addition to any drought tolerant garden.
Grevillea  The ultimate Hummingdird plant! Ranging from small shrubs to large trees, grevilleas are evergreen plants with needle-like narrow leaves or ferny pinnate foliage, usually in whorls around the stems. The flowers, which are fragrant in some species, are arranged in three basic forms: spider-like, toothbrush-like, and large brushes. Their flower heads, which open at varying times, are composed of many small flowers, usually in shades of yellow, orange, or red. Some varieties flower all winter long. Plant grevilleas in a sunny position with light, gritty, free-draining soil that is low in phosphates. Although drought tolerant once established, they flower more freely and the foliage is healthier for occasional deep watering. Needs no fertilizers. These plants are guaranteed to attract Hummingbirds into your garden with an abundant non-stop supply of nectar rich flowers.
Protea:  We have a large selection of premium pin cushion Proteas in stock right now. Native to South Africa and Australia, Proteas thrive in full sun and extremely well-drained soil.  Protea flowers come in large clusters surrounded by bright, spiky bracts that make for a very unusual and striking appearance. The flowers can be easily dried for flower arrangements. 
Ceanothus: California Lilacs, or Ceanothus, are some of our most fragrant and colorful shrubs here in California. They are evergreen and very drought tolerant once established. There are many different varieties and many different shapes and sizes so make sure you buy the correct variety for your garden. Flower color varies from white through pale blue, to deep blue. They make excellent hedges.
Manzanita: This is a large group of handsome, drought tolerant plants for those areas in the garden where nothing seems to grow. The ground cover varieties are useful to help prevent soil erosion. In stock we have the ground cover varieties Emerald Carpet and Point Reyes, and the large shrub Louis Edmonds in 1 gallon and 5 gallon.
We also have many fruiting plants including Passion Fruit, Dragon Fruit, citrus, stone fruits, blueberries and more. Now is the ideal time to plant these varieties.

Did you know?
The South Coast Botanic Garden is a 35 hectare garden in the Palos Verdes Hills, in Palos Verdes, about 16 km south of LAX.
   Did you know: Unique from the start, South Coast Botanic Garden is one of the world’s first botanical gardens to be developed over a sanitary landfill. The Garden is a masterpiece of creative land reclamation and environment improvement for all to share. It is a living testimonial to the fact that land reclamation not only offers a practical solution to refuse disposal problems, but also beautifies and improves land values at the same time.
   The Garden has become a beautiful and restorative urban oasis among the hustle and bustle of a major mega-metropolitan area. It is bursting with color and varied plant and wildlife, the grounds are a spectacular sight. The Garden has much to offer: members have access to 14 Clubs and Societies to become informed about specific plant varieties, i.e. roses, cactus, geraniums, etc. At least twelve flower shows are hosted for the members and public annually. Lectures, classes, concerts and weddings fill the calendar seven days a week. All of this make South Coast Botanic Garden a year-round attraction and an “Inspiration Site” for garden ideas. It is a fabulous place to take children on a hike and to see if they can spot the many varieties of wildlife that live there.
