'Yarwood' and California sycamores, willow and interior live oaks, western redbuds and Strawberry trees populate the median. Manzanita, 'Ballerina' Indian hawthorn, evergreen currant, white groundcover rose and California fuchsia are among the shrubs. Groundcovers include grasses (dwarf fountain, deer, dwarf blue-eyed), and 'Anchor Bay' wild lilac. California poppies also proliferate. Right The East End Gateway has distinctive 50-ft. wide landscaped medians separating the traffic lanes. Strips of no-mow dwarf turf-type tall fescue are interspersed with colored paving and seat walls. This environmentally-friendly landscape median replaced more than half of the site's original impervious pavement. Illuminated bollards (Cooper Lighting 'Invue Vision') provide additional safety at night.
