Claremont is home to the largest botanic garden dedicated exclusively to California’s native plants. California Botanic Garden displays about 2,000 taxa of California plants spread across 86 acres, including plants native to the California Floristic Province as a whole – from southern Oregon to Baja California.
In addition to featuring a world-class botanical library and graduate-level education program, the Garden offers horticulture and community education programs to the public to encourage the use of California native plants in home landscapes.
Each spring, the botanic garden is home a Butterfly Pavilion, where visitors can walk among butterflies and caterpillars.
