This weeks plant search led me to Australian Plants Nursery in the Ojai area. It's always been a really wonderful nursery to visit, but it's even better now. Since my last visit they have doubled in size with the purchase of their neighboring property. This acquisition enabled them to increase the propagation / growing grounds, retail display, and demonstration garden areas. They have a large selection of Australian natives, but also some pretty interesting South African plants too. Definitely worth the trip if you're looking for plants with beautifully textured foliage and striking flowers. Here are some pictures taken during my visit-
If you are interested in visiting the nursery please contact them to schedule an appointment.
