Luther Burbank Home & Gardens

Santa Rosa is home to the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens, an ASHS Horticultural Landmark and Mecca for gardeners everywhere. In addition to the gardens, the property consists of the Burbank Home, Carriage House (now a museum), and Greenhouse.


The gardens are open & free of charge year round from 8am until dusk. Although the Home & museum are closed during the winter months, they are very graciously offering Smofcon 36 members a docent tour of the property on Friday at 10 am, including the house & museum & gardens, for a $10 per person fee.

If you are interested in the tour, please register via our GARDEN TOUR registration page.


The Burbank Home & Gardens will hold their 39th annual Holiday Open House December 1-2, Smofcon weekend. The house and gift shop will be open from 10am – 4pm each day. There is a $3 entry fee.

More information about the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens as well as the holiday open house can be found on the LUTHER BURBANK HOME & GARDENS website.
