The Desert Garden was established on Park Blvd 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.
