So many beautiful plants! Texture, texture, texture!!! A feast for your senses! Loved the way they landscaped the regional gardens. Take the time to walk along all the different meandering pathways. Friendly & knowledgeable staff.

This is my go-to place for healthy, interesting AND drought tolerant plants. The people who work there (shout out to Jose, Alex, Josephina, and Chris!) are truly knowledgable, super patient and just great. They offer a discount to Lotusland members, too! It's a beautiful place...More

Go for a walk through their small botanic garden, which is organized by regions of the world. Very well done, quite peaceful. Then in their nursery, they usually sell what you are seeing in the garden.

It's not often that a commercial venture rates being called an attraction on Trip Advisor. This is more than a nursery. It's more of an adventure into a secret garden. Good prices too.

This is a wonder-filled nursery. They have planted areas so you can stroll and see what that little one gallon pot will grow into. There is a lotus pond that I want, a whole lot. There are fruit trees, shade specialties, succulents galore, garden accessories,...More

This is a really nice garden, divided into Australian, Succulent, Native Plants, and more areas. The Lotus flowers alone were worth the stop. Technically this is a nursery with a focus on plants sales, but there's no pressure or sales pitch. We were greeted and...More
