“It is Spring finally in Vista and with a benevolent season of rain; plants, especially natives, are coming alive as they do here in April. With nature’’s bounty there is a wondrous show of San Diego native plants at Alta Vista Gardens. A stroll through the undeveloped back side of the gardens will show you a great variety of blooming plants. The cultivars have probably been in place undisturbed for many years. Your walk should take you from the Children’’s Garden along the backside designated trail to below the pond and labyrinth and around to the backside of the house. The natives are tucked in amongst the rocks and hollows along the way. Right here in Alta Vista Gardens we have a natural native plants habitat and garden throughout the acreage in an arrangement that horticulture could hardly duplicate.”
