Visit and support Peckerwood Garden this winter!
December Open Day
Saturday, December 23rd starting at 10:00 am Register here
Visit Peckerwood Garden and see the wonders of winter and the special interests of this season. Without the heat of summer or the rains of fall and spring, experience the winter colors in leaf, bark, and bloom. The camellias have been in bloom since November and will be joined by deciduous Magnolias, Prunus, and Mahonia as winter progresses. See the changing colors and the special interest of winter. Each year, weather changes the timing of blooms and fruit a little from expected, so there is always an opportunity to be surprised. Visit us the 4th Saturday each month!
North dry garden and collections located across the creek tour: Peckerwood Insiders Tour
Saturday, January 6th, 10 am Register here
If you want to experience a little longer tour with a special focus and a handout of what is visited, join us for our monthly Peckerwood Insiders Tours. This month, the tour will visit the section of the garden located across the creek. If you have visited with us previously, you have seen this area from afar and heard about it from your docent, join us for this opportunity to learn more about the special interest that hides in the collections around the north dry garden. Only a few times a year do we share the opportunity to visit this special place. See up close the wall honoring Frida Kahlo and the surrounding collection that honors her home. See the blue of her home and the red doorframe with green highlights that mirrors her home in Mexico. Adam Black will take a limited number of people through the garden for 1.5-2 hours discussing the special collections, seasonal interest, unusual specimen, and practical information about the plants you see.

See the mix of color changing leaves, dormant plants, amazing blooms, wintertime perennials, and the special interest of the dry gardens and groundcovers that are a highlight.
