Strybing Arboretum

Throughout the year I will be taking photos of plants and their flowers that are thriving in the Strybing Arboretum in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. San Francisco has a Mediterranean climate that is only found (outside of the Mediterranean Sea) in pockets of Northern California, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Chile. Dates have been given, but some of these plants may flower for many months or more than once a year. The San Francisco Flower Show (at the County Fair Building in the Strybing Arboretum) is held each July.
