This is definitely worth a few hours if you're in town. The visitors center area was very well taken care of and I enjoyed the different floewrbeds i.e. desert, tropical, etc. It was themed/landscaped very nicely. The geology museum was on the smaller side, but had very interesting specimens, especially the precious gem section, on display. If you take the driving loop around the grounds you can go over the butterfly garden which was the best part of the grounds in my opinion. It's a natural outdoor garden that attracts a lot of wild butterflies. There's also a beautiful sitting area with a gazebo overlooking a pond.
Absolutely Beautiful Gardens! Went late December and while obviously more dormant, a few camellias still sported their beautiful pink flowers. Excellent variety of evergreen trees and shrubs. I loved hiking through the different ecosystems and reading the many explanatory boards. Would love to come back in spring!
