We discuss what to plant in San Francisco to get colorful blooms throughout the year, including shallow rooted plants that thrive in containers, pots and window boxes. San Francisco native plants include gorgeous colorful plants that evolved in and are adapted to our varied soils and our variable weather. These plants also bring color to our gardens by attracting and feeding beautiful butterflies that co-evolved for their caterpillars to eat the leaves of these beautiful plants.
