Here at the Garden, we are over the moon excited for the warm weather that brings an abundance of flowers. Now that it is June and many of you are out of school and the official start of summer is right around the corner, there is no excuse to not be at Red Butte enjoying nature's splendor.

Plains Pricklypear    Opuntia polyacantha

This plant may be prickly but it sure is pretty! Can be seen near Hobb's Bench.

Natural Area

Be sure to hike through the Natural Area while you are here, the scene is breathtaking.

Bluemound False Indigo    Baptisia australis 'Bluemound'

Along the Floral Walk, these exciting flowers are sure to lift your spirits.

Narrow-leaf Yucca    Yucca angustissima

These unique flowers are thick and waxy and can only be pollinated by the Pronuba moth. You will find this native beauty at Hobb's Bench.

Golden Candle Oriental Spruce    Picea orientalis 'Aureospicata'

On the way to Hobb's Bench, check out the wonderful contrast of yellow new growth against the dark green old growth. Amazing right?!

The sun is shining, so put on your sunblock and come see the Garden blooming with magnificent color.
