Visiting the Garden

buy your tickets ahead

The great weather, spring break and the Chihuly in the Garden exhibition are all helping the Garden to sell out. You most likely will be turned away if we are sold out and you don’t have tickets. 

If you plan to visit the Garden, we strongly encourage you to purchase your tickets ahead of time online. It’s fast, easy and you have three options for tickets:

1) you can print them at home and bring them with you;
2) you can write down your confirmation number and bring it with you to the admission window;
3) you can give your name at the admission window and we can look up the order. 

We hope you will visit soon.

Wildflower Infosite

March - April

The Desert Botanical Garden’s Wildflower InfoSite is active each spring during March and April. The Garden partners with Arizona’s parks and gardens to provide you with a guide to where the wildflowers are blooming. This year, we are also inviting our social media followers to share with us where they are finding wildflowers in Arizona!

Share your wildflower photos with us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram and include #dbgwildflowers. We will be re-sharing and pinning the images to our new Wildflowers in Arizona Pinterest Board.

How to Read a Plant Label

customize your Garden visit

As a place of education, research, exhibition and conservation of desert plants, the Garden provides information about plants using many different techniques. One of these methods is through labels. These labels provide the Latin name used by the scientific community, its common name, where it grows and when it blooms.

You can customize your Garden experience further by downloading the Garden app. It includes trail guides, maps, garden tour, plant information and pictures, and a learning center that helps you care for your plants at home. You can download the app through iTunes for 99 cents.

The Garden app was developed by by Clarisoft & MuseumXP and Garden staff members.
