Fall is the best time to discover the enchanting plants of the world's misty, tropical high elevation forests, thriving here, too, thanks to San Francisco's famous fog! Celebrate the season with an array of walks, classes, special events and family activities!
Enter the Mesoamerican and Andean Cloud Forest collections and stroll through surprisingly lush jungles representative of typical cloud forest plant communities in southern Mexico, throughout Central America, and those from the western edge of South America. Amidst the deep greenery, delicate cuphea offer up bright, whimsical faces to those who look closely, vibrant salvias add bursts of color to the forest floor, giant groundsel transport you to another world with their huge yellow flowers, stunning cestrum provide a sense of awe, and much more awaits.
