Theodore Payne Foundation inspires and educates Southern Californians about the beauty and ecological benefits of California native plant landscapes
A NATIVE PLANT LEGACY
The Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers & Native Plants (TPF), established in 1960, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the understanding, preservation and horticultural use of California native plants. Our headquarters are located on 22 acres of canyon land in the Sun Valley neighborhood of Los Angeles, in the northeast corner of the San Fernando Valley. Our full-service native plant nursery, seed and book store, art gallery, demonstration gardens and hiking trails are open to the public year-round. We offer classes for adults and families, and host offsite educational outreach events throughout greater Los Angeles.
