Theodore Payne Foundation is a great resource for expertise in drought tolerant California native plants.
The Theodore Payne Foundation, established 1960, operates a year-round, retail nursery offering the region’s largest and most interesting selection of California native plants – hundreds of different species and cultivars, many of which are drought tolerant and low maintenance. Their Education Center and Outreach programs offer classes and field trips for adults and children.
Check out the classes they offer classes on native California plants and habitat on their website:
