The snow is deep and the temperatures literally freezing, so for this blog we decided to head indoors to our beautiful greenhouse. The tropical warmth of our state-of-the-art greenhouse and dedicated staff create a lush, welcoming and beautiful display.
The leaves have fallen on many of our trees, revealing the often overlooked textures and colors of their beautiful bark. The bark of trees and shrubs can create a tantalizing display of papery peels, deep gnarled fissures and lovely color gradients that provide visual interest throughout the fall and winter.
Just because the weather isn't warm anymore doesn't mean there arent plenty of beautiful things to be seen throughout the garden.
After the first major snowstorm of the year the garden looks great! The backdrop of snow creates a great contrast between our evergreens and trees and blanket of white.
Fall is the time when most maples put on the best show. At Red Butte Garden we have a nice selection of maples to give you a good taste of how maples can enhance your own garden.
Fall is definitely here folks and it's putting on its best dress just in time for Garden After Dark which begins October 18th. The Garden is draped with brilliant fall foliage, fall blooming flowers and showy seed heads.
Fall is the best time to visit Red Butte Garden to see our extraordinary ornamental grass collection. Examples of our collection can be found in every garden. Be sure you don't miss seeing a single one.
Late summer at Red Butte is when many plants in the sunflower, or aster family, (Asteraceae) put on the best show.
The flowers in this family come in many sizes from the very large like the garden sunflower, to the very small like the native Broom Snakeweed.
Even though it has felt like the surface of the sun outside, many of the plants love it and are blooming like there's no tomorrow!
