This year is the 100th anniversary of the Huntington's 3-acre rose garden, and May is the peak month to see many of its 1,200 varieties in bloom. Also this month, the Huntington holds its very popular annual spring plant sale (10:30-4 May 18; free; 626/405-2100), which features plant varieties not usually found in nurseries.
