Since 1952, Yukio and Molly Sumida have been serving the green-thumbed masses of the Peninsula and beyond with a great selection of plants, fountains and hardscaping goods. Native, drought-resistant California plants and exotics are all available, but Cypress isn’t just for the do-it-yourselfer. Ray Sumida heads-up the nursery’s landscape division, offering lighting, paving and water feature installation for estates and business. Don’t forget to poke around their fully-stocked gift shop for handcrafted goods from local artists, plus educational games and wooden toys for little landscapers.
