Southern California is part of the California Floristic Province, which harbors many unique and rapidly disappearing habitats. Our landscapes and the plants in them have had a long time to evolve because no glaciers scraped the landscape bare in the Puente-Chino Hills Wildlife Corridor. These plants are known for their fragrances and great adaptations related to our Mediterranean climate. These are a few of the plants you’ll find in our coastal sage scrub and chaparral ecosystems.
