Cherry Blossoms & Clivia

Mar 8, 2016

DSC00415The cherry blossoms are popping at Descanso Gardens, indicating that spring is on it’s way.

March 12-13, Descanso Gardens hosts its annual Cherry Blossom Festival with cherry blossom walks and “discovery stations,” a cherry tree sale, origami, the Camellia Lounge, and live musical performances.

This is a very popular annual event. We recommend getting an early start.
