Beautiful garden. Be prepared for tours to go longer than 2 hours. Give yourself at least 3 hours for the tour, questions, and walking around.
Because Lotusland is a public garden in a private, residential neighborhood, reservations are required.
Non-members must make a reservation to visit.
Otherworldly cacti, whimsical topiary, and a collection of silver-and-blue-gray plants mark this eccentric garden designed by a glamorous, Polish-born socialite. For more: http://tandl.me/SNik9D
Pretty place, but the tour is long & bless her heart, Helene M. is nice, but she doesn't speak English very well and mumbles in a very soft tone. Wish we had a different docent!!
Went on a great tour with Jim, he works Thursdays and Saturdays. The actual address to get in is NOT on Ashley Road, it is 667 Cold Springs Rd.
Don't miss the cycad garden, theater garden, and clam shell pool!
