In support of the Bay Area’s 19th Annual Bringing Back the Natives Tour, Annie’s Annuals & Perennials in Richmond is hosting a “Native Plant Extravaganza Day” on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Not only will our tables be overflowing with natives, but we’ve got speakers, food pop-ups and live music too make your shopping day all the more fun,” according to the folks at the 2.5-acre growing nursery at 740 Market Ave. in Richmond.

Annie’s loves natives and grows hundreds of them, noting that over 2,000 species grow in California, which is more than in all other U.S. states combined. 

Natives are beneficial for your gradens because they can provide shelter and sustenance to local wildlife. They frequently reseed for successive freebie plants, generally thrive with very little assistance and can resist drought and disease, and help preserve flower, animal and inspect species while beautifying gardens.
