Arriving at the south gate you are met by the arts and crafts inspired entrance. The arts and crafts movement is very important to the history of the Arroyo Seco and Pasadena. Two majestic oaks greet the visitor. To promote their health, the area beneath the oaks is left with no plantings and the fallen leaves provide a natural mulch.

Plants you can find in this garden:

Loropetalum chinensis
Heuchera maxima
Ceanothus ‘Yankee point’
Monterey Manzanita
Vitis girdiana
Hammock Fern
Meadow Rue
