Gifts to the Garden

Your Support Makes an Incredible Impact.

“To me Lotusland is an emotional experience—

The weave of the garden is an expression of human emotion, of joy of living expressed through plants.”

~Lotusland Supporter

 

Ganna Walska Lotusland, with its rare and exotic specimens and unique themed gardens, is an unrivaled botanic treasure and a favorite destination for visitors from both the community and around the world. Open to the public since 1993, Lotusland serves a broad range of audiences including local school children.

Today, a significant endowment is required to meet the rising expense of maintaining Madame Walska’s rare plant collections and to continue valuable community programs promoting sustainable gardening, conservation, and horticultural research.
