Welcome to Summer

Well folks, I think we might be finally done with the snow and cold. Scott has beautifully planted the bed at the Visitor Center entrance with desert plants from around the world.

Entrance Bed 1

Entrance Bed 2

Before you leave the Visitor Center and enter the formal gardens, check out the new addition in the north east corner.  This cycad has been a part of Red Butte Garden for the last 40 years. It was formally planted in our conservation greenhouse and it likes its new home so much it is putting out a new set of leaves!
