cost is $24, again tax included. The prices from there are as follows: #3 = $30, #5 = $50, etc. We have

June 2022 inventory
Plants for the foothills and lower mountains:
- Among the plants in the landscape at right are the Western Redbud,
here in full bloom (magenta flowers) in the early spring. To the right of it is a
California Buckeye, one of the earliest shrubs to leaf out in the
spring. Behind these two small trees is a Valley Oak tree, just beginning
to produce leaves. To the left of the Valley Oak tree are two Gray (Foothill) Pine trees,
one with a typical rounded crown and another with a forked trunk, also characteristic of this lower elevation pine tree. To the
right and behind the Buckeye tree is an Interior Live Oak tree. An excellent shrub to
consider for landscapes in these regions is the Toyon, an evergreen shrub
or small tree, which has white flowers mid-summer and copious red berries in the autumn. Toyon is also very fire-resistant,
and it can be safely be planted adjacent to structures.
