chihuahuan desert gardens

The Gardens were established in 1999 and are certified as a Texas Wildscape site. With more than 800 species of plants that are native or adapted to the Chihuahuan Desert, visitors can see the plants in their native setting. The Chihuahuan Desert Gardens are visited by thousands of people each year, including international visitors and school children from the region.


FloraFEST is the only fundraiser for the maintenance and operation of the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens. Shoppers can visit with local Master Gardeners, horticulturists, and other plant experts for advice on how to care for their plants at home. Many of the plants sold at FloraFEST are not available at local nurseries or retailers.

FloraFEST 2021 will be April 17 and 18, from 9 am to 4 pm both days.
We might end early on Sunday if we sell out of plants.
