Behind-the-Scenes Nursery Tour

May 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Included with admission or membership

The Ruth Borun Nursery and Propagation Center at Descanso serves as the backbone for growing, protecting, and enhancing the botanical collections.

From growing annual plants for the Promenade, to establishing new varieties of native California species, to “backing up” and saving clones of our historic lilac, camellia, and rose varieties via rooted cuttings, the nursery is constantly active and working on projects of all types.

Join this tour to see all that horticulture in action!

Meets at Center Circle. No registration required, free with admission.
