Discover the Wonders of California Flora

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden is the largest botanic garden dedicated to California native plants,
 promoting botany, conservation and horticulture to inspire, inform and educate the public
 and scientific community about California's native flora.
The Garden is a living museum with curated collections of more than 22,000
California native plants, some of which are rare or endangered.
Spread across 86 acres in Claremont, California, the Garden is located approximately 35 miles east of Los Angeles.
The Garden displays about 2000 taxa of California plants and includes those native to the California Floristic Province.

Currently they are featuring “Origami in the Garden”.  
It is an outdoor sculpture exhibition of larger-than-life origami creations.  
The sculptures capture the delicate nature of Origami,
a paper art form originating in Japan and celebrated around the world.
Created in museum quality metals, the artworks each tell the story of a single piece of paper
as it transforms into a soaring bird, emerging butterfly, galloping pony, and many other remarkable forms.
