If you like peace and quiet, now is the perfect time to visit the Garden.


Red Osier Dogwood (Cornus sericea)

This shrub brightens any winter landscape.


Cattail (Typha latifolia)

Cattails are always a welcome sight, and they really stand out in the sunshine.


Utah Juniper (Juniperus osteosperma)

These blue 'berries' are actually the female cones.


Gambel Oak (Quercus gambelii)

It's quite a serene feeling walking underneath Oak with blue sunny skies overhead.

It's been said that cold exposure is good for us, so put on your boots and coat and come enjoy the cold weather that brings peace and serenity to the Garden.
