Brooklyn Park, Minnesota

We will be there about the same time in February 2018. Are the gardens still beautiful at this time of year?

Further: The citrus trees may have fruit but the likelihood of flowers would be low

HOWEVER you can certainly expect to be able to enjoy the Alhambra and Generalife with less crowds so you will be able to see the buildings with less tourists in the way of the photos you may wish to take

The gardens have no flowers during winter time. Just the bushes and the rest of green around.

The temperature is okay for walking and you might get a nice sunny day which helps taking nice vibrant pictures around the Alhambra.

But never expect the same colours and flowers that surround the complex in Spring-Summer.

No but the views will still be great particularly if you get a crisp,sunny day.

It can get very cold in the evening at that time of year.

I do not have any idea. Many of the plants are rose bushes, which by the way, are not well attended. In October, the gardens were not too interesting. I suspect in February they will be even duller. The issue basically is that General life is "thrown in" with the visit to the palaces. If you want to see the palaces, the general life is availble, but from my perspective just a pass the time while you wait to get into the palaces. I have seen far more interesting gardens and patios elsewhere in Andalusia. The palacio de viana in Cordova has far more interesting patios.
