The Desert Garden was established at the Park Blvd. location in 1976 and contains more than 1,300 plants, including succulents and drought-resistant plants from around the world, within its 2.5 acres. The peak blooming period is January through March; however, these plants are interesting at any time of year because of their unusual shapes
Personal Experience: I love visiting this spot. There are so many quirky plants growing here including a hollowed out tree that is large enough to fit inside! The rose garden is filled with a large variety of fragrant, colorful roses and oh so beautiful. This is located on the east side of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.
