Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre
Please enter through the North-Facing Amphitheatre gates. See Parking section below.
The Garden offers an impressive selection of herbs, specialty annuals, vegetables, sun and shade perennials, ornamental grasses, roses, vines, shrubs, conifers, trees, and the best selection of heirloom vegetables, native and water-wise plants you'll find in one location. Our selection includes plants for every situation, including bee-friendly, and high-altitude plants and gifts. Most of the plants are grown by local nurseries and many of the vegetables are grown here in our own greenhouses! This annual plant sale and fundraiser is always a great way to welcome the planting season and support the Garden!
We also offer a variety of organic gardening products such as fertilizers, and coco-fiber that when mixed into your garden or container soil, aids with water retention.
A sticker with an outline of the state of Utah means it's a native plant. Be aware that not all native plants prefer low-water, Utah has many native plants that require consistent moisture.
An orange sticker with a bee means the plant is bee friendly.
A green sticker with a mountain image means the plant is hardy at high elevations.
Be sure to check water requirements listed on the ID cards, whether by text or sticker.
With our Garden staff and volunteers, there will be plenty of qualified help to answer your plant and gardening questions.
If you have your own small wagon, bring it! We have a few shopping carts and plenty of cardboard plant trays.
From the four-way stop sign at Chipeta and Wakara Way, turn left (or North) and follow the signs. Enter through the north-facing gate used for general admission during concerts.
Parking is available in lot #75 outside the sale entrance and in the new parking garage just north of the amphitheatre entrance. We also protect a “loading only” area near the sale entrance/checkout for loading plants after you are able to collect your vehicle. Note too that there are few handicapped parking stalls in this particular University lot.
