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.
Artichoke agave (Agave parryi).
Aeoniums make great splashes in the garden. This is Aeonium 'Sunburst'.
