Quarryhill Botanical Garden’s fall tour

Two lavish Sonoma Valley gardens — one with a Moroccan flavor and the other the personal garden of a renowned Bay Area landscape architect — will be open to the public during Quarryhill Botanical Garden’s Fall Garden Tour on Sept. 18.

At this year’s fundraiser, ticket-holders will be treated to The Mulberry House, a cozy, artistic retreat surrounded by captivating courtyards and gardens, including a shaded sitting nook, a succulent garden, a formal rose garden and surprises, from a children’s playhouse to antique French potter and rustic metal sculptures.

The itinerary also includes the Jubaea Estate, a lavish Mediterranean garden with tiled and stone mosaic courtyards, 14 species of palm trees, an allee of century-old olives as well as alluring collection of succulent and broad-leaf shrubs and perennials from all five Mediterranean climate regions.

Cost is $145 for non-members, $125 for members, and tickets are limited.

Vans will take visitors to the two gardens. Tours are scheduled at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., leaving from Quarryhill, 12841 Sonoma Highway, Glen Ellen.
