Desert Botanical Garden
The Desert Botanical Garden, located in Phoenix, Arizona, covers 145 acres and features desert plants, not only from Arizona, but also from around the world. It is the only botanical garden in the world devoted entirely to desert plants. It was begun in the 1930s with the purpose of conserving the desert environment.
Visitors will see plenty of cacti and succulents. There are also some very nice sculptures and a butterfly exhibit. The optimal time for seeing the cacti in bloom is from March through May.
The garden is open daily from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Admission for adults is $18.00. Admission for children is $8.00.
