Sierra Azul Nursery and Gardens specializes in plants and gardens for California’s Mediterranean climate. Our goal is to promote the aesthetic use of Mediterranean climate adapted plants in water-conserving gardens and landscapes. This includes fruit trees and plants for shade gardens.

Sierra Azul Nursery is a retail plant nursery specializing in Mediterranean plants from around the world. Our nursery includes two acres of demonstration gardens featuring mature plants in a garden setting, accented by sculptures from local artists. Be sure to check out our special sales, and the art workshops and events we host.

Sierra Azul Nursery and Gardens holds a vision of the garden as a place to link with the natural world and its many wonderful contrasting elements. We hope to share our vision with you. Come visit the rich, aesthetic, physical world of Sierra Azul Gardens.
