There's always something happening among the plants of California, and summer is no exception. Take this late afternoon walking tour with Garden Horticulturist Bruce Reed to see what plants thrive and bloom in the summer heat. It will be the perfect time to plan for Fall planting. Bruce will start with a brief slide show to familiarize you with the plants that are in bloom, followed by a walk through the Garden with plenty of time for questions and picture taking. Please wear comfortable shoes, and bring a hat and water.
