The general climate in New Orleans is quite tropical as are its lush gardens. You’ll see sweet olive, birds of paradise, jasmine, wisteria, Japanese plums, several varieties of gingers and bougainvillea.
The tour takes place on October 16th and 17th, 2010. Each day, six private walled gardens will open their mysterious gates between noon and 4pm. This is a self guided walking tour so can you linger as long as you like. For more information about the Secret Gardens Tour, contact Patio Planters at www.patioplanters.org.
