With a relatively low average rainfall of 13 inches in the winter, the semi-arid plant community called Coastal Sage Scrub is often defined by its slope alignment. Plants on south facing slopes get more sunlight, turn golden earlier, and support less vegetation than north facing slopes. Plants on north facing slopes stay green longer with less direct sunlight, and support more plants.
