With temperatures in the triple digits, it is important to make sure you drink enough water. Just like people, plants also need to stay hydrated.
Mosaic Flower Ludwigia sedioides
One way plants stay hydrated is by growing directly in the water.
Water Fern Marsilea mutica
Although it looks like a four leaf clover, this water plant is actually a fern.
Yellow Water Lily Nymphaea odorata 'Sulphurea'
Another water loving plant, this water lily produces delicate yellow flowers.
White Water Crowfoot Ranunculus aquatilis
Look for this Utah Native in the Upper Pond with the Mother Moose sculpture.
Kamchatka Stonecrop Sedum kamtschaticum
Succulent plants, like this Stonecrop, stay hydrated by storing water in their tissues.
These beautifully designed succulent pots can be found at the entrance to the Water Conservation Garden.
Although it's hot outside, there are plenty of escapes from the heat at the Garden. Bring your water bottle and come enjoy a walk through Red Butte.
