Winter is one of the most colorful months in the gardens—a great reason to plan a holiday visit. In the Desert Garden, masses of torch-like aloes light up the landscape with their spectacular holiday show, lasting well into the new year. Look for early-blooming varieties of camellias in the North Vista area and in the Chinese and Japanese gardens. Camellia season continues right through early spring. The golden fall foliage of the Ginkgo biloba trees in the Zen Garden typically reaches its peak in late November—a must-see for local “leaf peepers.” If you love poinsettias, don’t miss the exuberant display of the mature Euphorbia pulcherrima shrub along the South Terrace of the Huntington Art Gallery. And the Rose Garden will finish out the year on a fragrant note, with thousands of flowers blooming right up until pruning time in January.
