Over 48,500 people from around the world have visited and meditated in the gardens. Springtime at Ananda features 17,000 tulips, including 111 dutch tulip varieties, and draws over 12,000 visitors annually.


Our summer garden transition after Springtime at Ananda and are ready during July and August. You will see an array of roses, begonias, impatiens, zinnia, geraniums, petunias, marigolds, and much more!

Fall and Winter

As the weather cools the garden transitions from perennials to pansies and dahlias, with roses also still prominent. The fall foliage radiates its brilliance with bright burgundies of Japanese maple, and the reds, yellows, purples and oranges of our other trees, all against the striking backdrop of the Sierra evergreens.
