Choosing Trees & Shrubs for Your California Landscape

A state as vast and diverse as California provides you with many choices for trees, shrubs and perennials. Nature Hills Nursery is ready to supply you with everything you need to make your yard and garden a success.

On this page, you’ll find the best-selling California plants to help spark your imagination, including chaste trees, sunshine blue blueberries and pink muhly grass. There are many factors to consider when selecting your trees and shrubs, including what USDA Growing Zone you live in. For example, the Cara Cara Sweet Orange will only realize its potential in zones 9 and 10, so you won’t want to plant them in the mountains of Bridgeport or on the Los Angeles coast. Consult our California Plant Hardiness Zone Map to confirm whether a seedling is appropriate for your location. Soil conditions and potential pests are other factors that vary from region to region.
