Crown Harbor Homeowner Association

Plant Palette

The goal of plant selection in Crown Harbor is to use native, non-invasive plants that are drought tolerant. Native plants tend to grow better and their usage makes Crown Harbor eligible for available rebates from EBMUD. Drought tolerant plants help Crown Harbor to continue to reduce its water usage.

Our landscapers, Cagwin & Dorward, provided a list of shrubs that they know they can obtain.
