Demonstration Garden

Xeric Demonstration GardenThe Demonstration Garden is located at 680 N.

Each species has a sign with its name and a number.

Come walk through our garden and feast your eyes on a wide variety of low-water and desert-adapted plants suitable for cultivation in this area. Expand the possibilities for plantings in your garden after seeing the wide variety of thriving plantings in ours.

The garden is open to the public seven days a week.

Self-Guided Garden Tour

A new Demonstration Garden Guide is available. In the guide, plants are listed in order by number so you can follow along. You can download the Demonstration Garden Guide, or borrow a copy from the front desk of the Utilities Administration Building during normal business hours, Monday thru Friday, 8am – 5pm.

The tour begins in the southeast corner of the garden, next to the building. Refer to the map for the route.

If you see a plant you want to purchase, be sure to ask your local nursery well in advance.
