Visiting The Desert Botanical Garden

Whenever I travel, I always try to fit in a visit to a garden, where I can learn more about landscaping and horticulture.

Last week, during a brief trip to Arizona for other business commitments, I stopped at the beautiful Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. Situated on 140-acres in Papago Park, the Desert Botanical Garden features cactus, agave and other desert plants of the Sonoran Desert and the world. Founded by the Arizona Cactus and Native Flora Society in 1937, the garden has more than 50-thousand plants - one-third of which are native to the area, including 379 species, which are rare, threatened or endangered. Please visit the Desert Botanical Garden the next time you’re in or around Phoenix.

Here are some photos.
