Friends of the Fullerton Arboretum

The Fullerton Arboretum is your passport to the world of plants. Without going far from home, you can inhale the fragrances of the Mediterranean, feel the cool shade of the redwood forest, delight in the glorious fall color of the northeastern United States, hear the rustle of the palm trees, take a break in a desert oasis, laugh at the funny forms of succulents, and breathe in the perfume of old fashioned roses. This collection of more than 4,000 plants, on 26 acres, is important for other reasons as well. The Fullerton Arboretum helps us to understand the diversity of the worlds plant life and the importance of protecting the earths plant treasures.

Welcome to our world and grow at the Fullerton Arboretum. From home composting to the care and pruning of roses, the Fullerton Arboretum offers community education classes during the week and weekends that help you to grow and connect with your garden. Other topics often included are: growing deciduous fruit trees, gardening with perennials, exploring California native plants, the selection and care of orchids, botanical watercolor painting, and the art of pressing flowers. Kid�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?s classes for junior gardeners are also available.

Be sure to visit our Potting Shed and treat yourself to a new, unique plant from the Arboretum collection. It�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?s stress-free shopping in a casual, friendly environment. Or, consider a nature tour of the grounds or a docent led tour of Heritage House or our Nikkei Museum. There are always lots of things to do at the Fullerton Arboretum.
