Crassula Falcata

Owners of Corona del Mar vacations homes often ask themselves how they can landscape their properties such that very little maintenance or irrigation is required.

The solution comes in the form of California drought resistant native plants. In the Corona del Mar coastal area, these plants are very tolerant of long periods without water and require very little trimming or attention.

These ground covers, shrubs, and trees come in a variety of interesting shapes which can complement any architectural style. Many bear beautifully colored flowers and foliage. Some bloom profusely throughout much of the year.
