Apparently the town next to Berkeley, Emeryville, is no longer part of California.

Hah, I’m just joking.

Here we see someone at the local mall who thinks that California native plants include spurges. They don’t!

And here we see that the entire garden is filled with non-natives – not a native to be seen. Shall we list them out?

Euphorbia from Europe, Senecio from South Africa, Chondropetalum from South Africa, Aeoniums from the Canary Islands, Sedums from Asia.

Actually, it’s a pretty nice drought-tolerant Mediterranean style garden, so I shouldn’t complain that they put out one or two silly native signs.
