About the All-Star Garden
The Butte All-Star Garden was the first of our gardens to be planted at Patrick Ranch. Our goal is to identify the best landscaping plants for use in Butte County. Butte All-Stars must be:
- easy to grow;
- well suited to our climate and soils;
- low-maintenance, especially in terms of fertilization and pruning;
- drought tolerant;
- able to support beneficial wildlife;
- and readily available to home gardeners.
We compiled the list based on research and feedback from local nurseries and home gardeners with tried-and-true experience. We’re proud to share the success of this garden with the public and invite you to visit often.
