Welcome to the Velez Jungle House!

Welcome to a peaceful corner of the world: The Velez Jungle House! 
This garden will be celebrating its 60th anniversary with you. 
Ralph J Velez II started planting in 1962.  When you come today, you will see many specimens of palm trees, as well as unusual plants and flowers from around the world. Many are labeled with the year they were planted, the size of container it was, and the botanical name. 

There is a section called the California Rainforest. This is an enclosed greenhouse that’s 18 feet high growing plants from the tropical regions of the world with higher humidity and heat. 
Editor’s Note: This UNIQUE must see garden was featured on the television program “Visiting with Huell Howser”. The link can be found at: TheVelezJungleHouse.com
