Plant Irrigation Trial WinnersHorticulturalists at the UC Davis California Center for Urban Horticulture are evaluating landscape plants with the potential to be good performers in low-water use gardens in hot and dry conditions like California. The results of these trials are providing growers and retailers the information they need to successfully distribute and market these plants to the public.

We were thrilled to learn that our Dianella Coolvista and Lavandula Meerlo are Blue Ribbon winners in this multi-year test by the University of California Landscape Plant Irrigation Trials 2017-2019. Thanks to the Sunset Western Garden Collection for submitting them for the trials and for including these low-water usage selections as part of the Sunset brand.
