The Garden Guide

Davis Arboretum Garden

The Arboretum specializes in plants adapted to a Mediterranean climate: hot dry summers and cool,wet winters. It is on the banks of the old north channel of Putah Creek. The Ruth Ridson Storer Garden has a collection of herbaceous perennials and small shrubs. The Carolee Shields White Flower garden is based on the idea of a Moon Garden, as found in India (see link to additional information).
