About this event


After two years of virtual tours, we’re thrilled to announce that the 2022 Native Plant Garden Tour will be back in-person on April 23 & 24. Spotlighting 30+ gardens across the city, this two-day journey will bring together the plants and people that make Southern California one of the most unique and biodiverse places on the planet. Highlights include 10+ new gardens, a new stylized tour guide filled with vivid stories and interviews, and an after party at L.A. State Historic Park.

For a sneak peek, please visit nativeplantgardentour.org


The gardens are divided into two groups:

  • Eastside Gardens Open Saturday, April 23 from 10 am to 5 pm
  • Westside Gardens Open Sunday, April 24 from 10 am to 5 pm

A ticket allows you into gardens on both days PLUS admission to the after party taking place at L.A. Historic Park on Sunday, April 24 from 6 pm to 10 pm.


Each ticket includes admission for a single visitor to all gardens across both days, admission to the after party, and a printed color guide with addresses and driving directions. The tour is self-guided, so you can make your own itinerary and go at your own pace. Tickets and tour guides will be mailed starting in early March. Children under 16 do not require a ticket.


Add a Sponsor Ticket to your purchase at checkout! TPF will distribute these tickets to the Foundation's school and community partners.


The illustration by artist Bijou Karman depicts the endangered El Segundo blue butterfly on its exclusive host plant, the sea cliff buckwheat. This unique ecological interaction occurs in the El Segundo dunes, adjacent to the Los Angeles International Airport and the famous Theme Building, also featured in this image. The contradiction of such a specific regional ecological interaction inside a massive global city will inform the themes that we explore on this year’s tour. We’ll ask the questions:

How can we rebuild our unique ecology and preserve our precious natural resources while the city of Los Angeles continues to grow? And how can we inspire Angelenos to embrace a future that nourishes and sustains human and non-human life alike?

We’re excited to bring these questions to life through the gardens we feature, the tour guide booklet, website and conversations and events leading up to the tour weekend.
