The 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.

Every April, the Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens hosts “FloraFEST,” a two-day sale featuring thousands of native plants. The event began more than 20 years ago to provide customers an opportunity to purchase native plants and promote responsible ecology and water conservation.
