Bay Laurel Garden Center

Bay Laurel Garden Center specializes in California native plants and drought tolerant plants suitable for our area, the northern part of San Luis Obispo County. Browse through our extensive stock of quality plants. We are happy to help you select the ideal varieties for your garden.

Fall is on the radar and Bay Laurel Garden Center is preparing for its entrance. Petunias are rather passe at this point with a few exceptions. ‘Indian Summer’, aptly named, is a trailing variety with changing hues of yellow to orange to coral. The perennial fall standby, Chrysanthemum, is available in 4″ and gallon containers. We’ll have some 6 packs of Calendulas plus Primula for the shade to get your fall/winter garden started.

What could be more appropriate than a new Manzanita in these times? This one appears to be quite exceptional. It has the largest leaves of any low growing Manzanita. The rather long name is Arctostaphylos x media ‘Peter Ehrlich’. The growth habit is 2 to 3 feet tall and at lest 6 feet wide. Our selection of California natives at Bay Laurel Garden Center is always changing. Fall is a great time to plant them.
