Fodor's Expert Review Darlingtonia State Natural Site

Florence Garden

Six miles south of Sea Lion Caves, on the east side of U.S. 101, is an example of the rich plant life found in the marshy terrain near the coast. It's also a surefire child pleaser. A short paved nature trail leads through clumps of insect-catching cobra lilies, so named because they look like spotted cobras ready to strike. This area is most interesting in May, when the lilies are in bloom.
