15,000 tulips this Spring!

During Springtime at Ananda, guests are welcome to visit the gardens during weekends, as well as weekdays 10 am – 5 pm. Groups are welcome to visit weekdays – please call 530-478-7587 to arrange your group visit.

With the varied weather patterns we've been having, it is difficult to predict when the tulips will bloom. So, rather than publicize our Tulip Weekends now, we encourage you to check crystalhermitage.org as we get closer to April.

If you want to plan ahead, the weekend most likely to have tulips is April 9-10.

The rest of the year, the upper gardens are open 9 a.m. to dusk by donation, the lower gardens open by appointment.
