Ganna Walska Lotusland
Santa Barbara, California

This 37-acre site became a public garden in 1984. The earliest plantings date from the late 1800’s when a prominent nurseryman owned the property. Ganna Walska acquired the property in 1941 and spent the rest of her life designing and developing the grounds into a series of distinct gardens. These include a Butterfly Garden, a Japanese Garden, an Australian Garden and more. Major plant collections include cycads, ferns, and cacti and succulents.
