Thursday, April 24; 5:30-7:30 PM
Celebrate spring and the wild flower bloom in the California Native Garden! We will gather as the sun starts setting in the picturesque stone circle, surrounded by flowering meadow foam, douglas iris, and wild lilac, to sip on signature cocktails crafted with ingredients gathered from the Botanical Garden. As dusk approaches, Garden naturalists will lead a twilight tour of the Arthur Lee Menzies Garden California of Native Plants with plenty of time to stop and smell the flowers.
Meet at the Main Gate. Check-in at 5:30PM. Last entry 6:00PM
More about the Arthur Lee Menzies Garden of California Native Plants
With displays of over 500 taxa (species and cultivars), the four-acre Arthur L. Menzies Garden of California Native Plants features arroyos, ponds and woodlands, and at its center, a wildflower meadow. This historic collection of plants is at its peak bloom now! April and May are the best times to visit and catch a glimpse of bright blue wild lilac amidst a carpet of meadowfoam, iris, poppies and other amazing California native plants.
Natural Habitat Garden magazine author Ken Druse wrote of the Arthur L. Menzies Garden, "Beyond a collection, it is perhaps the most beautifully planned and maintained public garden in the country dedicated to habitat-style planting."
