Theodore Payne has the LA area garden tour is April 6-7, 35 gardens. The Native Plant Garden Tour is an annual program of the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers and Native Plants, Inc., a nonprofit organization established in 1960 to promote knowledge and appreciation of California’s native flora and our natural heritage. It is a two-day self-guided journey through 35 or more of the Los Angeles region’s most beautiful and inspiring home landscapes. At each site, you’ll meet garden owners, designers, knowledgeable docents and fellow gardeners.
The gardens are divided into two groups—one group open Saturday, April 6, and a second group open Sunday, April 7, 2013. Tour hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. Saturday gardens are inland, with destinations in the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys and around downtown L.A., along with one high-elevation garden in Acton (near the Antelope Valley). Sunday gardens are primarily on the Westside, with locations from Santa Monica to the South Bay, with two stops in Oxford Square (near West Adams).
