Accent Plants for Los Angeles Gardens


Most of these don't like frost or blazing hot sun - so they're perfect for Los Angeles and other coastal California areas that fit their conditions. None use much water, either.

Echeverrias. These are better in pots, but a small collection can add a lot of interest to a patio.
Eriogonum 'Theodore Payne'. Bold accent plants need something neutral to set them off. This plant does the trick nicely.
Artichoke agave (Agave parryi). Yes, it still has spines, but it stays relatively small and won't overwhelm your garden.
Aeoniums make great splashes in the garden. This is Aeonium 'Sunburst'.
