Summer Previews

As summer rounds the corner spring blooms are still delighting and summer plantings are soon to be here to tempt you. The Red Butte Garden Annual Spring Plant Sale is May 9 & 10, and a wonderful chance to treat the mothers in your life to a stroll through all the beauty on display at the Garden. Come enjoy the wonderful weather and get a head start on your garden!

Volcan Lilac    Syringa vulgaris 'Volcan'

This wonderfully fragrant late blooming lilac is just about to reveal its delights.




Manchurian Cherry    Prunus maackii 'Jefree'

The hanging clusters of buds are bursting open in a beautiful display of white blooms.




Alpine Willow    Manchurian Cherry    Salix nakamurana var. yezo-alpina

This surprise addition to the Water Pavilion doesn't look like the typical willow most people are familiar with. More curious visitors can find it near the mother and baby moose statues.




Austrian Pine    Pinus nigra

While near the Water Pavilion take a moment to enjoy the Conifer Garden and the interesting immature cones to be found on its trees.




Red Jewel Crabapple    Malus 'Jewelcole'

Last year's bright red berries make a striking show against this springs flowers.




Here's a sneak peek at some of the incredible variety of plants that will be available next weekend!



While a wonderful selection is available throughout the sale, be sure to get in early for the best selection. The garden is wonderful for a visit any day though!
