It took a while to build this collection of 50,000 plants over 55 acres. The original plans were laid out in the 1880s, but planting didn’t begin until 1937. The collection is divided into Mediterranean, tropic, temperate, and specialty sections. Especially cool are the Moon viewing garden, the ancient plant garden, and the Andean Cloud Forest. This is not the most advertised of San Francisco’s attractions, but you’d be remiss to miss it. It’s easily one of the most diverse botanical museums in the world.
