Getty Museum Gardens

The Getty Museum Gardens are located in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles, California.  The property covers 24 acres, and features a 134,000 square foot Central Garden.  In this garden, a tree-lined walkway crosses over a stream  which eventually leads to a round pool.  In the pool, is a stunning maze of azaleas.  It's really quite a sight to see.

 In addition to the Central Garden, visitors can also see a cactus garden with spectacular views of the mountains, the Pacific Ocean, and Los Angeles.
The gardens are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM.  Admission is free, but parking is $15.00.

Now for "Name that Flower."  Can you guess what this flower is?  I'll give you the answer tomorrow.


  1. Very unique garden. I like the hedge.

  2. very lovely garden--the flower looks like a variation of the mum--but i expect it is some sort of cactus flower :)

    1. The plants in the last picture are cacti. The plants in the maze are azaleas.

  3. wow - that looks fabulous. I've wanted to go to the Getty Museum,etc but never made it.

  4. Hi, Sherry! What interesting pictures. It looks like an amazing garden. That flower maze is awesome.

    I don't know what the mystery flower is, but I'll have to check your next post for the answer.
