People have been checking on my blog to find out about this year’s Big Bear Xeriscape Tour, so I thought I’d help them out by posting this year’s date, July 14, 2012.
There are 8 featured homes on the free self-guided tour, plus two nurseries, Eminger’s and Hunter’s. I’ll be at Hunter’s Nursery (FB) as usual, providing information about the many native plants for sale at Hunters that day.
This is an opportunity to get your hands on some very rare high-altitude native plants. Last year Lemon Lily, Lilium parryi, Humboldt Lily, Lilium humboldtii, and Rose Sage, Salvia pachyphylla were all available at the Hunter’s, plus a wonderful assortment of drought-tolerant plants that will grow above 7,000 feet.
The tour is created by the Sierra Club Big Bear Group, and co-sponsored by the Big Bear DWP. I’ll post more information nearer the date. For more information, please call Christie Walker at (909) 866-5006.
