California native plant gardening and landscaping have tremendous positive impacts to our watersheds, to habitat recovery, and to curbing catastrophic wildfires. In particular, the resolution recognizes that home landscaping and gardening with native plants can cut residential water use from 60 to 90% over conventional gardening.

Sages, Salvias, truly drought tolerant California Native plants. Depending on the flora there are 17 or 18 sages native to California. In California, the sages are visited by hummingbirds, bumblebees, wasps and bees. (Hummingbirds kill for sages. They defend the sages in their territory like they are the only water in the desert.)
