A world-renowned 3.5-acre garden, housing a collection of succulents, both unique and beloved, as well as drought-tolerant plants from around the world. The Garden’s founder, Ruth Bancroft, lived to be 109 and was a pioneer in drought-tolerant gardening. Open to the public year-round, the Garden showcases fabulous blooms during every season and highlights plant structure and texture in robust plantings.


We can’t wait to see you but please be advised of the following:

  • All visitors will be required to wear masks in the Garden and Nursery per County regulations

  • We’re limiting the number of visitors so the parking lot may be full and you may be asked to return later

  • Entry and exit areas to both the Garden and Nursery have been modified so please follow signs upon arrival

  • We will be reopening with reduced staff so your patience and cooperation is appreciated.
