Triangle Planter

Planter Overview 2, originally uploaded by inyopfc.

Here's the Triangle Planter, an area near my workplace that I created with the help of friends/supervisors at work and Sara. (I have 2 bosses, it is complicated). All of these plants are native to California, although a few are not native to Ventura County. The planter gets some water on its edges from small sprinklers, but most of this part does not get extra water... the rain brought these flowers up. Some of the plants you can see in this picture include deergrass (Muhlenbergia rigens), California poppy (Eschscholzia californica), arroyo lupine (Lupinus succulentus), and bush sunflower (Encelia californica). I am too lazy to italicize the Latin names right now. There are about 40 different native plant species in this planter.
