Editorial Review of
Quail Botanical Gardens
Encinitas is already glorious, but Quail Botanical Gardens and its four miles of garden trails, vistas, flowering trees, majestic palms and the nation?s largest bamboo collection makes it more breathtaking. Due to San Diego?s mild climate, plants from all over the world thrive here and the diverse topography provides a variety of microclimates giving visitors an experience of being in a desert environment to a tropical rainforest. San Diego Botanic Garden features numerous exhibits, including: rare bamboo groves, desert gardens, a tropical rainforest, native plants, Mediterranean climate landscapes, succulent gardens, an herb garden, firesafe landscaping, a subtropical fruit garden and native coastal sage natural areas. Bird watching is also a favorite hobby within the gardens and it is kid friendly with the new Hamilton?s Children?s Garden.
