Our two-acre Display Garden is a great place to see the exquisite plant life of the five major Mediterranean climate zones of the world which include California, central coastal Chile, the western Cape Province of South Africa, parts of Western and South Australia, and the Mediterranean Basin. Plants from these regions have adapted to the dry summers, and are more drought tolerant and conserve water.
