HIPS last toured this inspiring city garden in 2015. Planted on a steeply sloping two acre lot, the garden grants views into a canopy of palms whose size only becomes apparent as you make your way down to the base of the garden.
The garden showcases a surprising number of strikingly exquisite palms.
There are water features and other tropical plants as well. Sections of the garden have been reworked since our last visit. Tim is very knowledgeable about palms and this is an good opportunity to learn and gain advice.
NOTE: This tour will be limited to 65 people. Due to steep terrain, this garden is not accessible to those with limited mobility. No animals are allowed. Attendees wearing flip-flops or sandals will be turned away.
