This is a relatively large system of gardens featuring plants from the Southwest US and into Mexico. Their collection of small cacti is particularly good. Except for the first part of the park, their is little shade for the trails, so cover should be worn during the summer time.

The Desert Botanical Garden should be on everybody’s list when visiting Phoenix. It gives you a preview of desert plants in a comfort of well-maintained garden. You get to see so many unusual species of cacti – all forms, shapes, sizes. You may also spot a few interesting birds, small animals and butterflies. The views of surrounding area come as an extra bonus.

Located right next to the Phoenix Zoo and is a very tranquil, interesting place. You can walk around the desert and learn all about the plants found native to Arizona. Its beautiful at night and especially at night during the holidays since they have a special luminaries display along the grounds and local musicians.

Believe it or not, there are soooo many varieties of succulents, and a lot of them are gorgeous and awe inspiring. I was originally hesitant to go, but in the end I was glad I made the trip out here.Recommended for

Always a must see, especially if you wonder what does grow in Arizona, in spite of our reputation as a desert only. There is a lot more than meets the eye to Arizona. This is a great way to experience the outside even if you don't want to travel far to do it. Once there you also have to try Gertrude's or the Patio for a meal or beverage.

This is located south and a little west of Old Town Scottsdale. But is it a must see if you enjoy the desert flora. They have desert plants from all of the Americas. You are in the desert - bring water.
And then you can visit Old Town for lunch after. What a wonderful day!

This a great place to visit for a day trip. I went there last weekend and there was a butterfly exhibit and there are also a wide array of desert plants. If you plan this trip, go early in the a.m. as it gets hot in the afternoon. Bring good walking shoes and enjoy the flora.
