Notable specimens include nearly all the state's conifers and oaks, a very good collection of wild lilacs, perhaps the most complete collection of California manzanitas anywhere, expanding collections of Californian native bunchgrasses and aquatics, and representatives of some 300 rare and endangered vascular taxa of California.
