Favorite specimen plants for CA gardens?
I want to compile a list of great specimen plants for California.
Preferably natives or other like climate plants, Mediterranean, South African, Australian, Chilean, or plants from other areas that will do well with our summer drought and winter rains with little supplemental water.
Large Grasses or Bamboos
(or any other categories you like).
Reasons you think they make a great specimen tree and pictures would be great too!
