The Desert Botanical Garden is home to several trails and exhibits designed to engage you in the Garden experience and educate you through interactive exhibits.

As you pass through the Garden’s entrance, you will find yourself in Ottosen Entry Garden, where you can access many visitor amenities. From Ottosen Entry Garden you can begin your journey through the Garden on the Harriet K. Maxwell Desert Wildflower Loop Trail or the Desert Discovery Loop Trail. The Desert Discovery Loop Trail, which is paved in brick, will connect you to all trails and exhibits throughout the Garden.

How to Read a Plant Label

As a place of education, research, exhibition and conservation of desert plants, the Garden provides information about plants using many different techniques. One of these methods is through labels. These labels provide the Latin name used by the scientific community, its common name, where it grows and when it blooms.

You can customize your Garden experience further by downloading the Garden app. It includes trail guides, maps, garden tour, plant information and pictures, and a learning center that helps you care for your plants at home. You can download the app through iTunes or Google Play for 99 cents.

The Garden app was developed by Clarisoft & MuseumXP and Garden staff members.
