We saw many nice things in this garden, but I am not prepared to deliver any kind of organized presentation. If you have specific questions, I might be able to help you in the comments. Otherwise, please visit the garden's website.
I'm always quite enchanted by "vines" on trees. At home I have climbing Rosa 'Moonlight' in my Ceanothus and passionvines in my Tibouchina. Of course this look, with Philodendron, wouldn't work in San Francisco.
It already seems like we have every manner of palm in the Bay Area (the palm map takes a few minutes to fully load), but I suppose we aren't quite there yet.
I also enjoyed touring this garden's extensive hardwood plantation.
Topping the trees thickens the trunks.
Apparently, this baby albatross hangs out in this spot all day long, waiting for his parents to get home from work, hundreds of miles away, quite indifferent to all the human visitors passing by. I used my camera to zoom in, of course.
Solandra maxima. Rarely seen in San Francisco but this woody climbs redwoods and eucalyptus in Golden Gate Park. (More common seen in Southern California where it's a-not-too-uncommon landscaping plant.)
Cotton. California grows enormous quantities of cotton. Ridiculous! Agriculture claims most of the state's water (subsidized, of course) while the rest of us live in perpetual drought.
Cotton is a mallow, in case you didn't know.
I had no idea there was another Monstera besides M. deliciosa. This is M. acuminata. I think it's kinda creepy.
I wish I'd taken more (better) pictures of it.
Strongylodon macrobotrys. I think the Logees catalog is the closest I've ever gotten to this plant before now. The vine covered the entire swing-gazebo, but there were only a few flowers.
I'm not sure what this vine is but it had as much flower as leaf.
From the other side, with flash.
The only plant I really want: Plectranthus ambonicus. A succulent-leafed, extremely fragrant oregano. Not a great looker, but I WANT SOME.
