LOTUSLAND

Wednesday, July 22, 2020

$135 members, $150 non-members

Board at 8:45 a.m.; Depart at 90:00 a.m.; Return 4:30 p.m.

Lotusland is a globally renowned (and locally treasured) 37-acre estate and botanic garden situated in the foothills of Montecito, California. Today we will witness the largest renovation of any garden in Lotusland’s history. After 11 years and $6 million, Lotusland has reopened its beloved Japanese garden. Today, the Japanese Garden is wheelchair friendly, boasting new entrances, new gently sloped pathways, and wide spring blossom and Japanese maple walks. The reflecting pond has been revived along with a new arch bridge and a Karensansui dry garden. It is home to more than 3,000 different plants from around the world. The estate gardens were created by Madame Ganna Walska, who owned the property from 1941 until her death in 1984. The fascinating life and career of Madame Ganna Walska culminated with 43 years of designing unusual display gardens with exotic plants will be covered on our “Docent lead” walking tour.
For lunch we will stop in the heart of Santa Barbara at Paseo Nuevo and State Street. This outdoor shopping destination, offers national retailers, specialty shops, restaurants, sunny Spanish-style architecture, and beautiful courtyards.
On our Journey home we will stop at a beautiful 3+ acre botanical nursery that has eleven garden vignettes that provide an around-the- world sampling of plants that thrive in our coastal environment. They include Asian, Australian, California Native, Central/South American, Grassland, Mediterranean, Native Wetland Bioswale, Perennial/Cottage, South African, Succulent, and Tropical themes.

Deadline: June 22, 2020
