Ahh... so glad it's August. Now that we've passed the peak of summer heat, come enjoy the slightly cooler part of summer at Red Butte.
This is a spot you'll want to stay in for a while. Isn't it breathtaking!?
One of my favorites in the garden, the magenta flowers are so vibrant!
The flower heads look like little pineapples! So cute! View it in the lower part of the Water Conservation Garden.
A beautiful aquatic plant native to Eastern North America. It is displayed in the Children's Garden pond.
The orange flower spikes add fun texture to the Water Conservation Garden.
Another Garden favorite! The striking purple flower heads contrast well against the green foliage along the Floral Walk.
This daylily cultivar produces many heavily ruffled flowers, however each flower only lasts for a day, hence it's common name. See it in the Water Conservation Garden.
This beauty can be used as a vegetable. The roots and stalks are edible, as well as the unopened flower heads that can be cooked like a small artichoke. This can be seen in the Desert Harvest portion of the Water Conservation Garden.
There is a lot of wonderous beauty happening in the Garden right now, don't delay visiting the Garden today.
