Desert Botanical Garden – Phoenix – Virtual Tour

The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix was established in 1939, and it now has over 50,000 plants. One-third of the collection are native to the area, including 379 species, which are rare, threatened, or endangered.

The Botanical Garden focuses on plants adapted to desert conditions, including samples from countries and regions such as Australia, Baja California, and South American. 

Several ecosystems are represented: a mesquite bosque, semidesert grassland, and upland chaparral. Plants from less extreme climate conditions are protected under shade houses. 

The Garden offers workshops and lectures on landscaping, nature art, photography, and wellness. The Gardens are also a plant research institution.

Volunteers have been historically essential in the Garden’s creation and development and remain essential today for sharing their time, talents, and expertise.

“We must cultivate our own garden. When man was put in the garden of Eden, he was put there so that he should work, which proves that man was not born to rest.”
