Beautiful garden with unique tropical plants. I enjoyed the tour and found it informative. Saw some plants I had never seen before and was impressed. I was disappointed, however, that the garden includes no native plant species and actually includes some species that are considered...More

This property was a pasture when Ed & Joyce Doty bought it. Now it is a truly world-class botanical garden. We can't tell you in words how awesome the Children's Garden and Alaskan exhibit are. Each sculpture has its own story. It was a godsend...More

We went on the stroll and walk tour where you’re in a group of 8 in an open golf cart/trolley-like vehicle and are able to make stops and walk around along the way. It’s a bit disappointing if you’re there to learn more about plants....More

While I don't actually know - the property is "high" and so water would drain off quickly.

I don't believe so. Plus there's no way to see the entire place just by walking. Highly recommend the Stroll/ride tour. Cover way more ground, and the guides are really knowledgeable.
