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.

Summer annuals are slowly arriving – the usual petunias, marigolds, lobelia plus some more unusual items as Nicotiana, Queen Anne’s Lace, Godetia, Linaria and Lisianthus. The shade house is looking particularly colorful. You will find ‘Ruby Slipper’ Coleus, zonal and ivy geraniums plus Fuchsia ‘Autumnale’ – a variety with colorful leaves and two shades of Bacopa.

We were fortunate to have a successful bareroot season. The unsold roses have been potted up but we receive many requests for other varieties. Therefore, we are currently trying to supply the demand. If you have a rose on your list, let us know and we’ll see if it’s available.

The desire for native California plants grows every year. Manzanitas are always at the top of the list. This year we have one of the largest selections of 15 gallon plants ever. The varieties include ‘St. Helena’, ‘Louis Edmonds’ and ‘Sentinel’. You’ve undoubtedly noticed the glorious blooms on the Ceanothus. These plants can be somewhat short lived, but they are nevertheless really worth if for their spring show.

Our nursery carries a great selection of pottery, statuary and gifts as well as everything you need for a beautiful landscape. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff look forward to meeting you!

During the months of January, February and March, we stock hundreds of varieties of bareroot fruit and nut trees, berry plants, roses and shade trees. Visit our Fruit Trees Online website to find out more.
