Sunset Climate Zone 24 for Hillcrest Landscaping
Hillcrest is known for its “tolerance and acceptance” of its numerous locally-owned businesses, including restaurants, cafés, bars, clubs, trendy thrift stores, and other independent specialty stores. Hillcrest is an older neighborhood with a new generation of culturally diverse upper-middle-class and well-to-do citizens. Many streets are lined with trees. There are Craftsman homes and Mid-Century modern apartment buildings. Mission Hills bind the neighborhood to the northwest, Bankers Hill and Balboa Park to the south, University Heights to the north, and North Park to the east. A prominent ridge overlooking San Diego Bay borders the neighborhood to the west.
Hillcrest is classified as Climate Zone 24. Stretched along Southern California’s beaches, this climate zone is almost entirely influenced by the ocean. Where the beach runs along high cliffs or palisades, Zone 24 extends only to that barrier. But where hills are low or nonexistent, it runs inland several miles. This zone has a mild marine climate because the Pacific is comparatively warm south of Point Conception. The winters are mild, the summers cool, and the air seldom really dry. On many days in spring and early summer, the sun doesn’t break through the high overcast until the afternoon.
Tender perennials like geraniums and impatiens rarely go out of bloom here; spathiphyllum and pothos become outdoor plants, and tender palms are safe from killing frosts. In this climate, gardens that include such plants as ornamental figs, rubber trees, and Schefflera can become jungles. The all-time high temperatures aren’t incredibly significant in terms of plant growth. The average all-time high of weather stations in Zone 24 is 105°F. Record heat usually comes in early October, carried to the coast by Santa Ana winds. The wind’s power and dryness typically cause more problems than the heat itself—but you can ameliorate scorching with frequent sprinkling—though difficult in drought conditions.
