Welcome to the official website for the Home, Greenhouse, and Gardens where world-renowned horticulturist, Luther Burbank, lived and experimented with plants for most of his 50-year career.

This Registered National, State & City Historic Landmark is a unique city park located at the corner of Santa Rosa and Sonoma Avenues in Santa Rosa, California - across the street from City Hall and Juilliard Park. See the map to Luther Burbank Home & Gardens.

The Carriage House Gift Shop and Museum is open and walk-in docent-led tours are available April through October. The grounds are open daily from 8:00 a.m. to dusk year-round for self-guided tours and reserved Group and Children's Tours.

C-SPAN Cities Tour

Santa Rosa was highlighted on C-SPAN’s Cities Tour in October and Luther Burbank Home & Gardens was part of it!

You can view our episode here: it’s 12 minutes long. Archivist Rebecca Baker and garden consultant Rachel Spaeth talk about Luther Burbank’s work and show off the Home & Gardens.

Did You Know?

In California, Arbor Day is celebrated on March 7th, in honor of Luther Burbank’s birthday. (In many other parts of the country it’s celebrated late in April, as being a more appropriate time, weatherwise, for planting trees.)

In fact, California celebrates Arbor Week, March 7-14. You can find more information about local activities at Arbor Week.
