We tend to go to botanical gardens a lot when traveling. The location of this place is right along a main road where you hear the traffic the entire time walking through the gardens. Loses its sense of nature with the car background noise. The...More

I've read the reviews that say this garden is not well kept. All I can say is that when I was there it was beautiful, serene, calming, and very well kept. There is a beautiful, old, Spanish style home on the property (available, I believe,...More

A bit out of the way, but worth a stop. So many cacti! Great desert atmosphere with mountains and old house surrounding the area.

This was a fun little place to explore in Palm Springs. Lots of exotic succulents. They sell some of them if you're interested. Admission is cheap and it doesn't take a lot of time.

Right off the main drag in Palm Springs, walk up an almost-hidden path to Moorten Botanical Garden, a treat for $5: cacti and succulents from local to faraway regions. Meander on the walkways to see plants from tiny to towering, round as barrels to many-branched,...More

This is a small but interesting botanical garden. They have plants that you won't see elsewhere. You can see everything in 20 minutes. I recommend it.

Apparently this family-owned place was established in 1938 and as such should be honored and respected for having endured these many decades as real-estate pressures must have honed in on it. A bonafide botanical garden it is not, however, so hort-heads should not hold their...More

Sometimes small private displays are under impressive. But we really enjoyed this one. The granddaughter of the owner greeted us and was helpful and open. The paths wound around just enough to give a sense of it being larger than expected. The greenhouse was full...More
