I am a big fan of natives. Not only are they drought resistant, but they also resist many of the local pests and diseases. I'm slowly getting them to spread throughout my gardens and eliminating the non-natives that require a lot of maintenance.
Blooming in the garden today are the lanceleaf coreopsis
