  • Angelica Elliott, one of the Garden's wildflower experts


The Garden is committed to giving students an in-depth look at their favorite groups of desert plants. Each plant grouping, or genus, will be examined in terms of taxonomy (classification), morphology (structure), ethnobotany and horticulture. This unique approach to the plants in the Garden's collection will provide new perspectives whether you are walking our trails, gardening in your backyard or just enjoying nature.

Delve into the wonderful wildflower world of Penstemon, sometimes known as beardtongues. Penstemon is a popular ornamental among plant enthusiasts for its striking array of flower colors, numerous hybrids and cultivars, and small size. This classroom and trailside experience will be taught by Angelica Elliott, one of the Garden's wildflower experts.
