Quarryhill is a 25-acre botanical garden of mature, flowering Asian trees & shrubs. Magnolias, dogwoods, maples, birches, roses, lilies, rhododendrons, and many others are laced with paths and hidden places to sit and relax, while surrounded by ponds, waterfalls, and vistas of the Sonoma Valley.

Quarryhill welcomes visitors year round to enjoy our Asian woodland garden, containing a rich diversity of Asian flora. All seasons in the garden have their own beauty.

Self-guided tours are available during our open hours without reservation. Docent-led tours are available by reservation. Group tours for garden clubs and other groups or organizations are also available with advanced reservation.
