Luther Burbank Home & Gardens

Greenhouse & Carriage House

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 urban garden located at the corner of Santa Rosa and Sonoma Avenues in Santa Rosa, California. See the map to Luther Burbank Home & Gardens.

The Carriage House Museum & Gift Shop is open and walk-in Docent-led tours are available April-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.

Please note: pets are not allowed in the Gardens. Service animals only.

Volunteer Here!

We invite you to join the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens Volunteer Association. You’ll meet and work with many interesting Volunteers as well as greet thousands of visitors from all over the world.

We have opportunities for Docents, Gardeners and Gift Shop Volunteers. No prior knowledge of Luther Burbank necessary – we will train!

What’s in Bloom

The Gardens are starting the slide into autumn. The dahlias take a starring role right now, supported by – as always – the roses and Shasta daisies. Still plenty of color in the gardens, no question about that. View more photos…

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.
