can be found in the East Asia and Australia Gardens and in this month's In Bloom
feature, complete with photos, plant profile and exact locations.

Become a Garden Keeper
A new membership category, Garden Keeper, was launched this year for members who prefer to make recurring gifts to the Garden. As a Garden Keeper, you make an ongoing monthly gift of support. Recurring gifts are not only a convenient, safe and secure way to make donations, they are the most effective means of raising support for SFBGS, allowing more of your donation to go directly to the many high-quality programs at the Garden.
You may even be able to double or triple the impact of your recurring gift to the Garden if your employer offers a matching gift program!
