They'll never forget how you made them feel! The 'Wurtz' or 'Little 'Cado' was discovered right here in Encinitas in 1935. Today it's the favorite for small spaces because it is a true dwarf variety. Little tree but big fruit that is creamy, rich and buttery for the best avocado toast, guacamole, tacos and salads -yum! This is 15 gallon size, usually 4-6 ft tall at planting, self-pollinating and should start reliably cranking out the avos in first or second year. Perfect gifting for a summer...
Glossy leaves, fragrant flowers and beautiful, deep-colored fruit - this classic citrus tree has it all! Great cooks love this lemon for its thin skin and juicy pulp. Less acidic and a bit sweeter than the Eureka. A beautiful addition to any patio, deck or sunny balcony.
Colorful crape myrtles offer delightful blooms just when you think the heat has everything all tuckered out. They come in shades of red, pink, fuchsia and white - we'll find your giftees exactly what they prefer. Easy to grow and happy in a container, this one is a winner for all occasions!
The queen of the California garden! There are flowers! Fragrance! And loads of lemons almost all year round. The 'Meyer' has a thinner skin and is a bit sweeter and super-juicy, so it makes a perfect gift for foodies, entertainers and anyone who needs a reminder of what to do "when life hands you lemons!"
'Little Gem' is perfectly named! It adds all the charm of its cousin, the iconic southern magnolia, but doesn't need a lot of space. Gorgeous big creamy white flowers are lightly scented and the shiny deep green foliage makes it a lovely focal point in the smallest of gardens. This one is truly special!
Fabulous bloom with showy, deep magenta, orchid-shaped flowers from late fall through spring along the coast. A real stunner! Semi-evergreen, so there is always some foliage. Ideal ornamental, can reach 20' tall and wide at full maturity.
Nothing beats picking fresh, juicy sweet oranges from your own backyard! Imagine giving this most appreciated and delicious gift for a special birthday, a wedding or to celebrate a new member of the family. It's a beautiful evergreen tree with legendary blossoms and seedless, easy-to-peel fruit. Ready to pick in February/March. So much more thoughtful than the impersonal registry pick & click, this is the gift they'll always remember.
