Opened in November 2009, the Ottosen Entry Garden serves as Desert Botanical Garden’s grand lobby and features dramatic displays of cacti and succulents designed to showcase the beauty and diversity of desert plants and set the stage for your Garden experience. Four small gardens lie within the Ottosen Entry Garden: the entry, terrace, basin and canal gardens.

Adjacent to the Ottosen Entry Garden you will find many visitor amenities including the SRP Visitor Center, The Garden Shop, the Cohn Tour Gathering Area and restrooms. From here you can connect to the Desert Discovery Loop Trail and the Harriet K. Maxwell Desert Wildflower Loop Trail.

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 for 99 cents.

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