The landscape of Lotusland has proven itself to be a grand experiment aimed at perfecting horticulture and conservation for our area. The success of Lotusland can now serve as a resource to the community, a teaching tool of pest practices in horticulture and other educational opportunities. Our sustainable horticulture program aims to grow the vast collections of exotic plants in a way that preserves natural resources, delivers the highest quality, and guarantees the longevity of the rarest plants.
The special essence of a place like Lotusland is the pledge to improve on what we do. All of the practices have evolved over decades of experience and are carefully recoreded. These practices reflect the intentions of the organization to protect the envionment. Our program aims to align with all institutions dedicated to preserving the environment of California and to restore biodiversity where possible.
