Are you interested in gardens that are waterwise, low maintenance and attractive to humans as well as birds and butterflies?

Learn more at the CNPS Santa Clara Valley Chapter's annual Growing Natives Garden Tour on Sat-Sun, April 1-2, 2023 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is a free, self-guided tour of home gardens landscaped with California native plants. Gardens in San Jose, Santa Clara, Cupertino, Campbell, Los Gatos, and Gilroy/Morgan Hill are open on Saturday. Gardens in Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Los Altos, and San Mateo are open on Sunday. The tour offers a variety of gardens for viewing - from townhomes to 1-acre lots, from newly planted gardens to established ones. You won’t have to go far to see one: the gardens are located throughout the Santa Clara Valley and the Peninsula.

Visit as many gardens as you like - for inspiration, ideas, and pictures. What’s special about California native plants? They are adapted to our soil and climate and are easy to care for. Many of our native plants are naturally waterwise and drought tolerant. They support a wide variety of wildlife that has co-evolved with them, and their distinctive look and elegant beauty gives your garden a sense of place that is uniquely Californian.

If you can’t attend in person on tour days, you can visit online anytime at, which has a page for each garden including descriptions, photos, videos and plant lists.

The self-guided tour is open to all. Admission is free but donations to support the Tour can be made at any garden. Registration is required at For more information, visit or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
