The other garden we visited was Descanso, which is more of a local garden. Not as large as Huntington, but certainly beloved – the line to get in was crazy! I was able to use my Coastal Maine Botanical Garden reciprocal membership here – first use of that for the year, even ahead of my garden.
My sister had been here before to see the lilacs, and it turns out they have North America’s largest collection of camellias. They also had a great Spring show of tulips. But I think my favorite part was the back of the garden, where they had a native California plant collection. I’ll always go for the wildflowers, when I can.
