Come celebrate Utah by visiting Utah's very own Botanical Garden.

Japanese Maple
Japanese Maple     Acer palmatum

Not only are the leaves from this Maple dazzling, but so are the samaras, aka helicopters. View them along the Floral Walk.

Butterfly Weed
Inca Ice TM Peruvian Lily     Alstroemeria 'Koice'

A Garden favorite, this Lily provides months of flower enjoyment. It can be found along the Floral Walk.

Cranesbill     Geranium 'Gerwat'

This brightly covered groundcover blooms from summer until fall and can be seen in the Rose Garden.

Wingthorn Rose
Wingthorn Rose     Rosa sericea subsp. omeiensis f. pterecantha

In the Red Garden of the Rose Garden, these bright thorns stand out dramatically in the sunlight.

Japanese Hydrangea Vine
Japanese Hydrangea Vine     Schizophragma hydrangeoides

While the flowers have passed, the whitish-green leaves provide a stunning contrast against the darker green leaves.

Make sure to put Red Butte Garden on your list of things to do this Pioneer Day!
