The San Jose State University Botany Garden contains 91 species of California native plants in 42 families. From the San Jose State University website:

In the mid-nineteen eighties, the Biology Department and Facilities Development and Operations converted a 4000-square-foot area next to Duncan Hall from lawn dotted with young pistachio trees into a California native plant garden. Through benign neglect punctuated by flurries of weeding, planting, and pruning, this area has matured into a small piece of the "wild," attracting and nurturing a diverse variety of local birds and insects. In May, 2002, the garden was certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a campus wildlife habitat.

An overhead garden map and list of plants is available at the Biology Garden webpage.
