Sometimes we need a quiet stroll among the wildflowers—without hours of driving and hiking! Denver Botanic Gardens has hundreds of native wildflowers right here onsite to enjoy. The recent release of the Gardens’ book “Wildflowers of the Rocky Mountains,” authored by the experts of our own Horticulture Department, has renewed interest in knowing and growing our best native plants.
On the third Wednesday of every month (April – October) wander with one of these authors through our acres of naturalistic gardens to see which wildflowers are at their peak. Since many bloom at Denver’s elevation before they bloom in the mountains, seeing them here first can help you learn what to look for, where and when.
