To survive, plants must use their leaves to soak up the sun and their roots to tickle the soil until it forfeits its groundwater. See the struggle for yourself with this Groupon.
$18 for Admission for Two (Up to $36 Value)
General admission unlocks acres of desert flora and fauna. During a self-guided tour of the property, guests can visit more than 50,000 plant displays. From now until April 13, the Philip Hass: Four Seasons installation—designed by artist and filmmaker Philip Haas—dazzles with 15-foot fiberglass sculptures that were inspired by the paintings of Italian Renaissance artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
Desert Botanical Garden
A kaleidoscope of multichromatic blossoms and emerald leaves bursts from the soil, blanketing 65 acres of desert landscape at Desert Botanical Garden. Diverse walkways flanked by more than 1,200 types of cacti, succulents, and wildflowers educate visitors on the importance of protecting the environment and not hugging every plant they see. In addition to the garden's more stationary organisms, some of which go home with local green thumbs during biannual plant sales, numerous avian and insect species make their homes amid the thriving greenery.
Tips from Groupon Customers
“My friend and I went to the Garden to see the Chihuly exhibit, and it was simply wonderful. Be sure to take your camera and water!!!! :O)”
“For the Chihuly show, getting Groupons were the BEST way to go!”
“Yes, in the summer get there at 7:00 when they open before it gets too hot to walk in the sun on trails. Chihuli Exhibit was absolutely amazing - we got to watch...”
“Yes, in the summer get there at 7:00 when they open before it gets too hot to walk in the sun on trails. Chihuli Exhibit was absolutely amazing - we got to watch video on his lifetime achievements/exhibits all over the world and the restaurant right behind where they showed movie was great - wonderful sandwitches. Butterfly pavilion was also amazing and we all had such a great time there and would definitely go again - I probably should have signed up for a membership but it's a little far away from where we live! Thanks again Groupon as this was the first time I used you!”
