The Rose Hills Foundation Conservatory

The Rose Hills Foundation Conservatory

Last of the Huntington Garden posts from our road trip (aka…Matti finally gets to see LA).  We hit the succulents, checked out the Aloes…what’s left?  The Rose Hill Conservatory.  Hey, don’t get me wrong…Huntington has weeks of stuff to see and you can only see so much in a day.

Cool blooms in the Conservatory.

Like the Griswolds seeing the Louvre 10 minutes before it closed, today’s post is fast, down and dirty.  Check out this blooming guy?  NOID on it, anybody know it?

I found this development chart pretty sweet for the Nepenthes which I am a big fan.

Another fav of mine are the Melaleucas.  Hey, want more Huntington Garden action?  You need to visit Floradora…she has some amazing pics from a recent trip…a must see.
