We will experience the Gardens with a Descanso docent on this 45 minute walking tour. Be introduced to the magic and history of the Gardens with an eye to seasonal surprises. Principal collections include: California natives, oak woodlands, and one of the largest collections of camellias in the Western Hemisphere plus a rose garden, lilacs, maple and cherry trees, and iris'. Descanso Gardens is a story that has unfolded over three centuries. From the tribal people who relied on the plentiful oaks for food to the 20th century entrepreneur who sowed the seeds of a cultural botanical institution from his passion for plants. Walking tours are rain or shine so dress appropriately.
