Passion fruit, espalier avocados, and artichoke fill the gardens of this home nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Spilling through the front yard, an arroyo, painted with riparian plantings, makes its way round hippo sized boulders. Mexican grass trees, foxtail agaves, and blue fescue punctuate the the arroyo and give way to flowing purple three-awn. Native ceanothus and manzanita create a striking screen which gives way to a backyard teaming with succulents. An industrious garden full of desert beauty.
