Aloes display their spectacular blooms when most plants are dormant during the winter months—and when Lotusland is closed for public tours. This is a wonderful opportunity to spend an afternoon in the garden and enjoy more than 140 species and cultivars of aloes during the winter recess. This is a special privilege reserved for Lotusland members and their guests only.
Price is $30 for Members and $50 for their guests. Children 17 and under $20. Space is limited. For questions or reservations, please call 805.969.9990.
Lotusland’s aloe garden includes Aloe barberae, A. dichotoma, A. plicatilis, and A. ramosissima. Two unusual plants in the garden are large specimens of the gru-gru palm (Acrocomia aculeate) and a ponytail palm (Beaucarnea stricta). Many aloes, a genus of succulent plants native to Africa and Madagascar, have spectacular red, yellow or orange flowers.
