For some reason I never expected you to post a photo of Salvia (only because I never associated them with California).
But thinking about it logically it makes sense - are there any S.oxyphora there?

Meanie:

There's hundreds of shrub Salvia species which are native from Mexico to S. America which grow wild here. Most are very drought and heat tolerant. Also, most are long-lived and need no care.

Just doesn't seem exotic enough, if you know what I mean?

Meanie:

Most of the species grown here would probably be considered exotic there. Most are shrubs which grow up to 6ft/2m or taller. They need hot and dry conditions.
