Doryanthes palmeri, the spear lily, blooming in the Garden's Australasia Section.
On a brisk Fall Day, glowing reminders of a World of Flora. Other continents ... other seasons. The Garden's Canary Island section is located above the Garden of Old Roses, at the acme of the Garden, overlooking breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Here, a vigorous shrub, Salvia canariensis blooms in the foreground and also further back.
A detail of the Canary Island section, with the flowers of Aeonium lancerottense
taking center stage.
