Native Perennials


herb: Satureja douglasii  Yerba Buena, herb   
This fast-growing minty groundcover with the heavenly fragrance once covered large swaths of the Bay Area, giving its Spanish name Yerba Buena ("good herb") to the original pueblo that later became San Francisco. A delightful, medicinal, and iconic choice from our local flora that deserves a spot in every garden. Satureja has been changed to Clinopodium by the taxonomists.

Satureja mimuloides  Summer Savory  South Coast 
An attractive 18-inch perennial, a native in sunny moist spots along California's southern coast. Pleasant minty fragrance to the leaves; pull off a flower and sip the nectar to learn why hummingbirds love it.
