William Randolph Hearst wanted a garden that displayed a profusion of blooms throughout the year. So, hundreds of thousands of annuals, bulbs and perennials were planted to provide the displays Hearst enjoyed. Now, colors abound in the historic gardens throughout the year, which means you’ll always see the gardens in full bloom—no matter when you take a Castle tour.

Explore some of the Castle’s beautiful blooms below, or learn more about our efforts to preserve and protect the Hearst Castle Gardens.
