Ganna Walska Lotusland is at Cold Springs and Sycamore Canyon roads. In 1941 Polish opera singer and socialite Ganna Walska bought a 37-acre estate she called Lotusland, which she spent the next 43 years transforming into a botanical garden filled with exotic cactuses, succulents, ferns and bromeliads. Accessible only by taking a guided 2-hour tour, the garden also features fountains, a horticultural clock and ponds with lotuses and water lilies.
Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.
