Lotusland closes on November 15th for three months, so if you are planning to visit the gardens, jump on it now. Something is always in bloom every week of the year in several of the 13 themed gardens that comprise the 37 acre estate. October blooms in Lotusland's Fern Garden include the Cashmere Bouquet and the Freddie Begonia by Rudy Ziesenhenne. November brings the fruits of the persimmon trees in the Deciduous Orchard Garden and pomegranates at the entrance to the Cactus Garden. The tours cost $35 per adult and are docent led. They take about 2 hours of pretty constant walking, so good shoes are a must. Reservations are required, no drop ins accepted. Phone 805-969-9990 to book a Lotusland tour.
If you are planning a trip to visit Lotusland and need a fine Santa Barbara Bed and Breakfast, we'd be happy to talk with you. Call us at 805-682-9680 or book online, your preference.
