Here at the Garden we are thankful for... Can you guess?... Plants of course! They provide us with oxygen, food, shelter, medicine, and so much more!
Wingthorn Rose Rosa sericea subsp. omeiensis f. pteracantha
This shrub knows how to keep trouble away.
Nannyberry Viburnum Viburnum lentago
What vibrant fruit this shrub has! Viburnum fruit hangs on well into winter.
Yellow Witch Hazel Hamamelis x intermedia 'Primavera'
We still have flowers blooming!
Water Birch Betula occidentalis
This Utah native is the only native birch in the Southwestern US.
Apache Plume Fallugia paradoxa
This Utah native plant is having a great hair day. Speaking of hair, Native Americans use the leaves from this plant as a shampoo to promote hair growth.
Birds are thankful for plants as well. Plants provide food, habitat, and protection to birds and animals.
We're not only thankful for plants, we are thankful for you - our members and visitors. We wouldn't be a Garden without your support. We wish you a safe and happy thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.
