It's a lovely oasis of native Californian vegetation smack in the middle of freeways and busyness!

I waited until the last day to use groupon and unfortunately it was a super hot day! Didn't want my grandchild to get heat exhaustion so we only toured about half hour. It would be a fun exploration for a much longer visit but on a day when the temps are cooler.

We took the tour and it was absolutely amazing. The guide was excellent and even went over his time. You will love it. So worth the $$

I bought this groupon months ago and just realized that it was going to expire so I got off work early to take my elementary aged school boys. It was a hot day but it was a fun time. I wasnt thinking and didnt bring any water with us. We walked up to the store on top of the hill and was able to buy water and iced tea. The walk was easy and there were plenty of shady places to sit and rest. There were restrooms on the trails and lots and lots of squirrels to look at. I would find it hard to pay 8 bucks a pop to get in but with the groupon it was well worth the money i paid.

It would be helpful to post more signs or maps in the California Plant Communities area. It is easy to lose your way on the map because everything starts looking the same after a while. For example, maybe there can be signs in front of the Joshua trees, fan palms, Torrey pines, etc, identifying the trees so visitors have a reference to the map. Thanks!

Really nice place to visit. We took our three kids ages 3-8 and all enjoyed the turtles, giant tree ring, and walking on the paths seeing nature. We will go again in spring.

About This Deal

Plants, mankind’s greatest enemy, are finally on the ropes thanks to global warming. Teach your children how to hunt the last of these enormous nitrogen junkies by observing them in captivity with today's Groupon to Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. Choose between two options:

Founded in 1927, the garden is now one of the largest living-museum exhibits of California’s native plants. Open year-round, the garden offers a rotating cast of floral stars depending on the season. The winter collection, ending in early March, features manzanitas, and spring will offer a colorful bouquet of spring wildflowers, perennials, and shrubs. During the summer and fall, the garden will parade an array of native fruits and seeds—in the winter, the garden will ice parade them.

Rancho Santa Ana supplements its seasonal offerings with a busy calendar of events that are educational and inspirational. Some events come free with admission, while others require tickets. On March 19, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Rancho Santa Ana will sell a variety of California-native wildflowers that can turn any home garden into a home garden with California-native wildflowers (admission is free on March 19). On May 23, observe Mafia Day by bringing the corpse of your favorite stoolie to fertilize the wild lilacs.


The Los Angeles Times featured Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. Nineteen Yelpers give the garden a 4.5-star average, and three Insider Pagers give Rancho Santa Ana a rating of five stars. It also has more than 850 Facebook fans.

  • Prepare for romance. There is nothing that quite compares with the first stroll through Rancho. – Emily Green, Los Angeles Times
  • I love this garden! This is the best place to see California native plants in a garden setting. There is a wonderful wildflower garden in the spring, and the entrance goes through a lovely desert garden. – Naomi F., Insider Pages
