The Triangle

The Triangle is the southern corner of MEMBG and is outside of the main fence of the Garden. This space has changed hands several times over the years, but is now securely a part of the Garden. Trees and shrubs from all over the world can be seen in this area. Particular highlights include several massive Eucalyptus trees (E. maidenii, E. saligna, and E. acmenoides among others), as well as a sculptural Bracelet honey-myrtle (Melaleuca armillaris) in the northwest corner of The Triangle. Several beautiful species of Dombeya from Africa are found on the western edge of the area, providing showy early winter flowers.


The UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). As a promoter of nature at a California land grant institution, we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
