I have large planters around pool would like to know what plants to use that will not grow to high or to big and will not have large roots home located in camarillo ca.
You can find a list of commercially available native landscapte species for southern California by choosing that area from the map on our Recommended Species page. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by not too high or too big, but I will recommend a few plants from that list of a moderate size (3 feet or less) that should do well in containers.
