The Gravel Garden

The Gravel Garden is similar to a traditional Rock Garden, with very drought-tolerant plants nestled in rock crevices, surrounded by a gravel mulch.

Heat-loving plants are featured here, including a variety of sedum and other cousins of native plants, either from local habitats or from other wild places with Mediterranean-type climates.
