The Plants of Granite Gardens

We started propagating plants in a desperate attempt to find more plants that would be appropriate for dry Sierra Foothill gardens. We have had many failures but also many successes.
The main purpose of this website is to share our experience with you. Our Plant Database information on many of the plants we have succeeded with. Look for the code TNT throughout the database to indicate plants that are "Tried and True" in the Sierra Foothills. These are plants that have proven easy or reliable in gardens known to us.
You can navigate through our database of plants by using the alphabetical index on the sidebar. (The letter corresponds to the Genus.)
Or, if you are patient, by using the numerical pager on the bottom.
