Descanso Gardens, La Caņada Flintridge - Cherry Blossom Trees

1418 Descanso Drive
La Caņada Flintridge, CA 91011

Discover the tranquility of a Japanese-style garden that blends design elements of classic tea, strolling and zen gardens.

Cross an arched bridge and stroll on shaded paths along a koi-filled stream to the Full Moon Tea House, designed by Whitney Smith and built in 1966. The blue tile roofing, imported from Japan, is especially striking in the spring when nearby pink cherry and plum trees are in bloom. The tea house is open limited hours during the summer as the Camellia Lounge and for special occasions during the year.

Nearby, the minka (traditional farmhouse) was designed and donated by Robert H. Kawashima in 1969. The. plant collection features Japanese maples, azaleas, bamboo, and other Asian plants.
