“Inspiring people of all ages to connect with plants and nature”
Enjoy four miles of trails amid 37 acres of over 3,300 plant varieties, restful vistas, flowering trees, majestic palms, and the nation's largest bamboo collection. Thanks to San Diego's mild climate, plants from all over the world thrive here.
The mild San Diego climate makes it a unique place for rare and exotic plants to grow. Discover some of these natural wonders and beauties inside the San Diego Botanic Garden.
Home to more than 4,000 plants, you’ll feel like a plant expert by the time you leave. You’ll see the colorful blue hues of the sapphire tower plant, learn about how Native Americans used the Torrey pine tree for its healing powers, and time your visit right for the rare bloom of the corpse flower, which only happens every four or five years.
We think a visit here is one of the best things to do in San Diego!
