Native Garden Plantings

NATIVE PLANT GARDEN

Thanks to the help of Canyon Booster Club and the Palisades Garden Club, volunteers at Canyon Charter School have been able to transform the front garden into a wonderland of drought tolerant native California plants. From Penstemon to Canyon Snow Iris, with lots of colorful poppies added to the mix, the once-neglected garden is brimming with life. It also includes six varieties of ceanothus, and milkweed, the favorite home of Monarch butterflies and their caterpillars.   

This garden is a living laboratory for Canyon's students to explore and protect the plants and wildlife of the watershed ecosystem.
