Denver Botanic Gardens is a living museum with more than 300,000 plants and the horticulturists that care for these plants have a wealth of knowledge about gardening in Colorado. Come enjoy the Gardens in the company of an expert.

In 2017, to compliment the Gardens’ programmatic theme of water, each tour features a unique focus on the Gardens’ use of water, water conservation or plant water needs:

  • February: Orchids and their water needs (this tour is sold out)
  • April: Plants that are adapted to steppe environments with a focus on water-smart gardens
  • July: Plants that live in water
  • October: Great Colorado native plants that only need rain water to thrive
