Some of our garden is water-wise, planted with Rosemary, Rockrose, Lavender, Daylillies and other mediterranean plants. We've added roses and other flowering favorites. We have lots of shady areas from neighboring trees so many of our roses and other plants are shade tolerant. Our biggest challenges are mildew and rust from coastal fog. By choosing plants that thrive here, water spraying, mulching heavily, and adding companion plants to the beds we avoid spraying (organic). We are blessed to have great weather, pretty decent native soil and the nearby (1.5 mi. away) South Coast Botanic Garden as a model. We grow both modern and old garden antique roses.
