Quarryhill now open
Quarryhill Botanical Garden in Glen Ellen has reopened the garden for general admission. Since mid-May, Quarryhill had been open to its members only, following a two-month spring closure in the early phases of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The garden is now open every day except Tuesdays, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All visitors are required to wear face masks and observe social distancing protocols.
“We are delighted to welcome everyone back to the Garden this fall,” said Executive Director Scot Medbury. “Autumn leaf color promises to be particularly good in the coming weeks, so it is a beautiful time to visit.”
Quarryhill Botanical Garden is internationally recognized as home to one of the largest collections of scientifically documented, wild-sourced Asian plants in the Western World. Visitors see ancestors of garden favorites like roses, camellias and rhododendrons, magnolias, maples, dogwoods, lilies and so much more, all started from wild-collected seed and none planted in the ground before 1990.
Quarryhill Botanical Garden is located at 12841 Sonoma Highway in Glen Ellen. Admission is $12 for adults; $10 for seniors 65 and over; $8 for youth 13-17 and active military with ID, and free for children 12 and under. Members are always free.
