Every time of the year is a special time of year in the Huntington Gardens. The old saying goes something like, “California doesn’t have seasons,” but that’s not true – and proof of it can be seen in a visit to the Huntington Gardens in Los Angeles. With over 14,000 different varieties of plant on display in 14 principal garden areas, you can find a delightful display of beautiful blooming flowers in the Huntington Gardens any time of the year.
When Henry Huntington purchased the land back in 1903, the land was little more than a cattle range flecked with alfalfa crops. Today, 120 acres of that land is actively maintained, landscaped and open to visitors year round.
