  • Despite visiting Sonoma often, I'd never heard of this small botanical garden delightfully spread over a mountain side. Large enough to ramble in, small enough to enjoy in two hours. Quarryhill has ha...  more »
  • Bring your walking shoes and be prepared for some moderate uphill climbs. But, it is worth the trek. The gardens offer a huge variety of plants, flowers, and trees. When you get to the top where the p...  more »
  • Not since visiting Dan Hinkley's gardens outside Kingston WA (subsequently acquired by Burpee and then the local S'Klallam tribe) have I seen such a wonderful collection of Asian plantings. This forme...  more »

  • Not a lot of blooming plants~ the roses by the gift shop were pretty but the trails did not have a lot to offer in ways of flowers / plants. Lots trees and bushes. I would have enjoyed more flowers in a botanical garden. The $12 entrance fee was high for what the gardens offered.
  • Botanical Research Garden. The place for plant lovers who want to see plants in natural settings. Pretty walks. Best in Spring when plants are blooming.
  • I recommend going here in a nice morning. You will be walking up and down hills. There are a lot of great trees / plants but unfortunately not too much shade so bring a hat, bring a water bottle and go in the morning. Worker at the gift shop was very friendly, gave us a map and recommendations on the trail path. They did a very good job with this small space. I'm not a botanical type of person, but still had a few plants that spoke out to me. There are picnic tables outside of the trail and inside the trail. No dogs allowed though :( There are workers in their golf carts going around too so you won't be able to sneak them in.
  • Scenic botanical garden meets hiking trail spread across 25 acres of primarily Asian-origin plants across an expansive backdrop of Sonoma vineyards .
  • Such a beautiful place. Perfect for a change of pace from the wineries along the Hwy 12 corridor. Perfect to share a bottle of wine in the many areas of this wonderful garden
