在天然环境下加利福尼亚州，加州每年的野花放弃了他们的种子在地面上最后的春天或夏天。 Now, as the rains begin, these little seeds begin to sprout & grow rapidly during our cool, rainy Winter. This is their proper time to grow, producing vigorous happy roots below ground & lush foliage topside on their way to an explosion of Springtime bloom. (Annuals that prefer to grow in the cool season are called hardy annuals & that’s just what our Native annual wildflowers are!)
我们美丽的加州本土多年生灌木和也最好从雨季来临，现在种植效益。 Most of our native perennials are drought tolerant but must be established first. This means they need root systems solidly established deep into the soil before they will thrive with no water the rest of the year. Plant native perennials in the Fall & you’ll be rewarded with healthy, fast-growing natives next year.
正如加州本土一年生植物，最好在我们的湿增长，温和冬天 - 干燥的季节开始之前 - 同样也适用于许多经典的山寨花园耐寒一年生植物。 Of Mediterranean origin, Winter is their natural growing season & Spring their blooming season. Plant them now thru February & watch your garden burst into full & glorious bloom come March & April. (Just when everyone else is rushing to nurseries to begin their planting).
一个巨大的好处是，你不必担心浇水！ (Just bait for snails). Another for us coastal gardeners is many of these darlings will self-sow right after they’ve finished blooming, bringing a second & third crop (with water) to bloom again next Summer & Fall. An endless parade of prettiness! That’s why they’re classics!

沿海在这里，也有相当多的是，在冬季开花植物，把一个微笑在你的脸上，并邀请你的户外进入你的花园在一年中最黑暗的日子。 Some sub-tropicals and South African perennials & shrubs bloom only during the rainy months. Others will repeat bloom all year around. Many Winter blooming annuals will self-sow again, returning several times a year along the coast. Aren’t we lucky!!
