Mark the changing seasons every time you visit Red Butte Botanical Garden. Enjoy the blooming of 450,000 bulbs, crabapples, magnolias, and hawthorns in early Spring, closely followed by stunning displays of wildflowers in May, roses in June, an ever-changing kaleidoscope of flowering plants through the summer, dazzling ornamental grasses in the fall, and the contrast of evergreen trees against the quiet blanketing of snow in the winter.

One of Red Butte Garden’s most attractive features is its award-winning Terrace Gardens, which contain Herb, Medicinal and Fragrance gardens where visitors can bathe in the sensory glow of lilac, mock orange and lavender as well as the pungent, spicy smells of the culinary and decorative herbs. Also enjoy the Rose Garden, Four Seasons Garden, Water Pavilion, Water Conservation Garden, Red Butte Creek, waterfalls and the Natural Area featuring native landscapes.

Bring your kids and visit the Children’s Garden with its Butterfly Walk, Em’s Sprout House, The fountains, and sandbox. Sign them up for Summer Camp, Lil' Buds, or Garden Adventures classes. 

Other Garden events include art exhibits and bonsai and orchid floral shows, outdoor concerts, outdoor film, classes, lectures, and workshops. 

Guided walking and tram tours are available from May through September to give guests an intimate interpretive experience. Or feel free to tour the Garden on your own any time of year. Hours follow the seasons with longer summer hours from 9 a.m. until 9 .m. daily (except on concert nights when the Garden closes at 5 p.m. )

Schedule your private or corporate event in the Garden's Richard K. Hemingway Orangerie, Rose House, Fragrance Garden, Rose Garden or Amphitheatre. All offer stunning views of the Garden, Salt Lake Valley, and the mountains.
