Garden 16 in Historic Filipinotown

This former medical building in the heart of L.A. is now a stylish urban oasis for humans and wildlife. In 2004, the homeowners began the 5,000 sq. ft. landscape that offers a range of settings, views, and experiences. A streetside garden stands up to car and pedestrian traffic with its mix of tough native shrubs. Fragrant sages surround a sun-drenched upper terrace punctuated by clusters of cacti and succulents. A cozy back patio leads to the parking lot where white sage, lemonadeberry, and deer grass thrive. Look for such uncommon natives as saffron buckwheat, Ken Taylor flannel bush, and pink-flowering sumac (from Baja California). Photography: Philip Otto Photography
