What to look for:

An amazing garden greets you in the middle of the Paul J Ciener Botanical Garden parking lot. A large rock and dirt mound is a garden for sun-loving plants that like heat and good drainage. Spikes, color, and textures make this a garden worth studying. Spanish dagger, spreading prickly pear, pussy toes, and sedums all put on a show.


The garden was planted on a mound of gravel and is not irrigated.
