CAPIS: CALIFORNIA PLANT INFORMATION SYSTEMS

Choose from the options below to find plants that meet ecological criteria (climate, soil type, water availability) as well as design criteria (mature size, flower color, plant type). Enter as much or as little information you want, understanding that if the search returns no results, it may have been too specific. A good start for a plant search is USDA or Sunset Zone, as well as plant type (tree, shrub, etc.) to find a general list of plants for your needs.
