Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) growing field at Hedgerow Farms

 

Native Perennial Wildflowers and Groundcovers

The following list of plants all survived the severe wind, salt air, loamy and alkaline sand in our trial area and can be recommended for the all the different maritime conditions on the Monterey Peninsula. We strongly recommend using only the perennial (as opposed to annual) California Poppy in a residential setting and only Iris douglasiana will thrive in various depths of shade. The Blue Flax meadow wildflower requires the warmer temperatures of the Carmel Valley and eastern Monterey County with remove from maritime conditions.
