    Any of the native buckwheats!  They thrive without attention in my sandy, non-moisture retentive soil, in sun or shade, most look great all year (easy to prune those that need it), and are great habitat for bees and butterflies.

    My favorite California native plant is Quercus agrifolia, a great structural stalwart.  This tree requires no extra water, is evergreen, and contributes to my "mediterranean ambience".
