“Fragrance in the California Garden” Seminar by Peyton Ellas.

“Let’s create an easy-care, low-water-use garden using California natives and plants from around the world that will support native pollinators and delight the senses year-round! We’ll touch, see and of course smell a variety of plants, including some little-known species and leave inspired and ready to garden!”
