David FrossPerspective, Forty Years Among the Natives
Our speaker, David Fross, is founder and President of Native Sons Wholesale Nursery, specializing in plants from Mediterranean regions of the world that flourish in a climate defined by moderate winter rainfall and warm dry summers.
As founder and President of Native Sons Wholesale Nursery since 1979, David has seen his business grow in size and scope to include plants from other Mediterranean regions of the world - Mediterranean Europe, Southwestern Australia, South Africa and Chile - as well as California natives. Through his travels, he has added appealing new species and cultivars to the collection, and he continues to pursue and develop new selections with the intention of adding a sense of discovery and exploration to California gardens. He taught horticulture at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for twenty-five years and is the co-author of Ceanothus, Reimagining the California Lawn, and California Native Plants for the Garden.
Doors open at 6 PM.
