Sierra Azul Nursery and GardensSierra Azul specializes in plants from the 5 mediterranean climates around the world. Unique about this nursery are the accompaning 2 acres of demo gardens and interesting sculptures where visitors can see what the full grown plants will look like in the landscape. They specialize in mound plantings. They do sell fruit trees as well, though generally not exotics - unless they come from one of the mediterranean areas. Because they are located in Watsonville - over the hill from the Santa Clara Valley - they are often cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than other places on the tours. www.sierraazul.com. 2660 E Lake Ave, Watsonville, CA 950769–5:30
