100 All Star Plants - UC Davis

Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate - El Dorado Hills CA DRE# 01499004

I recently learned of UC Davis Arboretum's 100 All Star Plants that handle our climate, grow easily, resist pest and diseases, require little water, and look great in the garden!  Their website not only lists the 100 All Stars but lets you search plants based on the criteria, provides planting and care instructions, and lists where you can purchase the plants.  

You can see them in action at the Arboretum Monday -Friday 8am - 5pm.  

The El Dorado County Master Gardeners also have a section dedicated to All Star plants in their Demonstration Gardens - Sherwood Gardens at the El Dorado Center of Folsom Lake College.  It is open to the public now through the end of October 2016 on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10am - 2pm.

DeeDee Riley - This must be the secret as to why some homes have outstanding yards and others do not.  Great information for those looking to have the best plants for the area!

Hi Laura and Alexandra,

I was so excited to find out about these All Stars.  My husband and I have recently torn out a lot of plants in our yard that just didn't work out.  Will be looking to this list to fill back in! 

Wish you both a great week!

 Good morning DeeDee Riley . This is a great list of plants that can be easily grown in your area. We do have a similar one and most are deer resistant.

For ours to survive here they need to be pretty deer resistant as well!  Thanks so much for your comment!
