Plants in the medians

Landscape architects at Flora Grubb Gardens (1074 Guerrero at 23rd) help select plants for the medians.

These plants are shapely (some are spiky) and discourage theft and irresponsible dog owners. They are also rugged, and appropriate to our harsh, super-windy, dry location without being expensive. Canary Island palms, which are on Dolores, require additional water and cost $2,500 each, for reference.
