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.
