autumn/fall winter summer spring
Winter at Natal NBG

Winter (June and July) is when the Garden's many trees can be seen to best effect. With most of their leaves gone, the spectacular shapes and designs of the stems, trunks and branches are clearly visible.

Wild dagga (Leonotis spp.) flowers into June, filling the winter garden with splashes of orange.
Winter is an excellent time to enjoy the Garden's indigenous forest. It is easily accessible on a network of paths that wind into the hidden parts of the Garden, where animals as large as duiker (a small antelope) have been seen.
