The Ruth Bancroft Garden is offering Valentine’s Day Aloe Tours, an all-day event focused specifically on The Garden’s dramatic aloe collection. The Garden has an unparalleled collection of aloes, including hybrids not found anywhere else in the world. These winter bloomers put on a stunning show with colorful, dramatic flower stalks.
You can enjoy “Sweets with Your Sweetie” which includes a guided tour by curator and world-renowned aloe expert Brian Kemble, mimosas and sweet treats in our covered shade house, and a dish garden to take home as a remembrance of your visit.
A special selection of aloes will be available in our retail nursery as well as dish gardens, aloe books, and other garden inspired gifts for your Valentine.
