White Wisteria Island

Harland Hand [1922-1998], inspired by the principles of fine art and rock formations in the High Sierra, designed this hillside garden with breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay.

Using concrete, curving lines and dramatic color combinations, Hand created an emotionally evocative space that houses an extraordinary plant collection.

An island across from the White Garden has a huge white wisteria. a big succulent area, and hundreds of plants, many variegated.
