    Linda! Where can you buy the mountain lilacs around our area?

      Good question! Louie’s Nursery in Riverside has a good selection of native lilacs (ceanothus) and other natives, and Mockingbird Nursery in Riverside has really inexpensive ones – $3 – but has limited hours (Mon-Fri, call first). A little farther out, the nurseries dedicated to natives with many varieties of ceanothus are Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden in Claremont (their garden is a great place to see old growth natives), Las Pilitas in Rainbow (on the way to San Diego) and Tree of Life Nursery in San Juan Capistrano. Lastly, you might want to call other local nurseries & ask if they carry ceanothus as more are offering natives.
