Yerba Buena Nursery

Yerba Buena Nursery is California's oldest retail nursery business specializing in Native Plants and Ferns. This retail nursery was established in 1960 by Gerda Isenberg, a pioneer in the movement to recognize the landscape value of Native Plants. On her family's 3000 acre cattle ranch, Gerda fashioned a nursery dedicated to the propagation of these special plants, many of which are now rare, endangered, or extinct in the wild.

Santa Clara Valley Water District

At the Santa Clara Valley Water District, we've produced a video showing low-water plants. As part of our water conservation marketing, we're trying to showcase a variety of colorful plants that don't require much water. One of our vegetation management specialists appears in the video and explains the features of each plant. We are hoping you would consider putting the link of the video on your website.

We also offer rebates for folks who remove plants that require a lot of water and replace them with low-water plants. Hopefully, that will serve as an incentive for people to buy them. That information is available on the same page the video appears on.
