California's drought underscores the sustainability benefits of native plants in the Southland. River restoration efforts in the Arroyo Seco, the Hahamongna watershed, and along the Los Angeles River have accentuated the unmet need for plants that are regionally sourced and native to the area.

In addition to restoration efforts, it is now imperative that Pasadena and Southern Californians focus on transforming the landscaping of residences, parks, and businesses to meet the challenges of drought, fire, erosion, and climate change.
