RE: gardens of LA area


The Huntington is very nice indeed, a definite stop.  Descanso Gardens
(http://www.descansogardens.org/site/) is also quite nice, but their famous
camellias won't look like much. The Getty is interesting too - you need
parking reservations beforehand. There's the LA Arboretum
(http://www.arboretum.org/), which is pretty extensive and has some nice
plantings, including a lot of Australian plants; it's a little bit of a
drive out of LA proper but very easy to get to.  
I don't know if I'd send someone to Theodore Payne. I was just there about a
month ago and the pictures you see on their website of the nursery is what
there is - pretty basic. Now, all I did was head right for the nursery
itself and start loading up on gallon pots. We didn't look around for any
garden area so maybe there's something nicer there. They do have an
excellent collection of native seeds that a visitor might be able to take
back home and the staff is first rate.  
This one http://parks.co.la.ca.us/virginia_gardens.html is one I've meant to
try but never done.
