San Diego Landscape Ideas
Near La Jolla Shores, great combo effect here with the Hakea and Korean Grass(Zoysia tenuifolia). Hakea suaveolens is native to Australia, Korean grass, - fair to guess it's native to Korea, but it is native to the 'far east' of Asia. Unknown designer.
Malvaviscus arboreus, grows in a brambly fashion. Fills in airy space, informal, intertwines amongst other plants.
After pruning, which is done annually in late winter/early spring:
Lovely color combo composition at the Vons shopping center on Midway Drive, with Hymenosporum flavum(tree - yellowish), Agapanthus(blue), Hibiscus 'Crown of Bohemia'(orange), and Xylosma congestum(orangish new growth, hedge in background). Unknown designer.
(Click underlined title to see more) Vulpia myuros, a common non-native annual grass that grows in wild areas of the San Diego region, native to Europe, and gets up to about a foot tall. One caution about it is that it's highly flammable if ignited when dry. However, makes attractive golden straw color when dry.
American Classic front yard and house architecture, with San Diego adapted industrial strength plants: Liquidambar, Raphiolepis, Agapanthus, Fescue lawn. In Point Loma. Unknown designer.

Giving you answers, solutions, problem diagnosis and resolution for your plant and site situations, including plant health issues, insects, diseases, soils, fertility, site situations, design, watering practices, irrigation auditing, plant identification, and more. On occasion I serve as a consulting 'expert witness' in legal cases dealing with disputes between neighbors with plant/tree issues in their landscape.
