Crystal Hermitage upper gardensOur exquisite gardens with breathtaking views, set against the backdrop of the Tahoe National Forest and the Yuba River Canyon are beautiful and inspiring year-round. April visits for Springtime at Ananda are magical with thousands of vibrant tulips mixing  with the complementary colors of cherry trees, wisteria, dogwood, azaleas, rhododendrons, peonies and pansies, just to name a few.

The summer garden peaks in late July and August with terraces of lush dahlias, begonias, zinnias, and petunias. In the cooler fall season, dahlias, pansies and roses still bloom among the radiance of brilliant fall foliage.  While every visit to the garden may be different, it is always wonderfully peaceful and uplifting. For updates on the garden, visit our page, our Facebook page, or call 530/478-7587.
