2023 Theodore Payne Native Plant Garden Tour

20th Anniversary | April 15-16

Spring of Life

As lawns go dry across Southern California, opportunity is knocking. Life can spring from our cities while we reduce our outdoor water consumption and strengthen our communities. Find out what this looks like on the 20th annual Native Plant Garden Tour on April 15th and 16th, 2023. This year we are pulling out all the stops, highlighting visionary native plant landscapes across the city, and the cast of characters—people, plant and animal alike—who make them what they are. Join us as we reorient towards an ancient, ever-changing spring—the overflowing abundance of nature. Visit nativeplantgardentour.org for more details.

The Theodore Payne Native Plant Garden Tour is a unique adventure. Since 2003, more than 600 public and private landscapes have participated in the Native Plant Garden Tour. Ranging from coastal container gardens to modernist foothill estates to experimental urban homesteads, each unique design offers beauty and critical habitat for wildlife in one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots.
