The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona

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 my trip to Arizona for Super Bowl LVII, I stopped at the 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 519 species, which are rare, threatened, or endangered. Please visit the Desert Botanical Garden the next time you’re in the area.

Here are some photos.
