Native Bloomers

Red Butte Garden tries to incorporate native plants in as many of our gardens as possible. As you're strolling through the gardens this summer, if you're curious as to which plants are native we have made it easy to tell. On the bottom right corner of our signs we include a Utah symbol which indicates that the plant is native.
