This 20-year-old community garden is a long-standing bastion of earth-friendly landscaping and important neighborhood wildlife habitat. Irrigated mainly with reclaimed water, the 2/3 acre property is planted with a colorful medley of mostly California natives with other attractive Mediterranean-climate plants that thrive in sandy soil and coastal conditions. A pondless waterfall, dry streambed, and composting toilet are just a few points of interest. Look out for the official Manhattan Beach City Flower, beach primrose (Camissonia cheiranthifolia), propagated by volunteers on-site.

Beach Primrose, Camissonia cheiranthifolia

Manhattan Beach adopted a new city flower, the Beach Primrose, Camissonia cheiranthifolia, at its February 15th city council meeting.   The idea for the flower was proposed by the Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden board of directors last November with the help of Gary McAulay of the Manhattan  Beach Historical Society. Beach Suncup or Beach Evening Primrose, as it is also know, is a little-known drought tolerant native. Its new designation helps the city reclaim a piece of its horticultural heritage, and in the process offers a symbol for the modern "green" movement.  Thank you everyone who supported this effort.
