On the heels of our recent Garden Designers Roundtable on Inviting Nature Into the Garden, I wanted to share a resource that I’ve been finding incredibly helpful in recent months.

This list shares ten of the highest-impact natives you can plant to support multiple types of wildlife in your coastal Northern California garden.
