Hearst Castle gardens
Hearst Castle offers five tours covering different parts of the buildings and grounds. One of these is the garden tour. The gardens are not spectacular, but they are decent examples of the mediterranean style.
At this time in spring, lantana is a prominent feature.
Sometimes the Lantana is pruned in a clumping pattern.
Azaleas are another flowering plant that is featured.
The estate has a lot of steps and terraces that are used to set off plantings.
Ceramic elements and columns are other architectural features.
And of course the staturary for which Mr. Hearst was so fond.
