As featured in the LA Times and the Theodore Payne Foundation Native Plant Garden Tour, Garden Butterfly South Los Angeles is an informal inner-city residential landscape that provides support for local pollinators and beneficial insects while showcasing the beauty of California native plants and select Mediterranean climate plants that are suitable for local wildlife. Established in 2015, the elements of this garden include rounded and irregular stones, drought-tolerant potted arrangements, organic mulch, and raised garden beds filled with seasonal vegetables and herbs. Succulent pocket gardens, colorful blooms, diverse textures, and cool plant placements are arranged and layered in a style that Brandy Williams refers to as a "free form and aromatic scrapbook-garden."
