Red Butte Garden and Arboretum


Red Butte Garden is one of the largest botanical gardens in the Intermountain West, and together with the University of Utah campus, makes up the State Arboretum of Utah. They are located on 100 acres in the foothills on the eastern edge of the University of Utah campus. The Garden has welcomed guests since 1985 and consists of over 21 acres of developed gardens and five miles of hiking trails winding through an extensive Natural Area. The Garden, which is community-funded, is renowned for its numerous plant collections, display gardens, more than 540,000 springtime blooming bulbs (including a vast collection of daffodils), gorgeous private event spaces, a world-class outdoor concert series, and award-winning horticulture-based educational programs.

Red Butte Garden & Arboretum displays a wide variety of trees, highlighting those that thrive in the intermountain region with horticultural and aesthetic value. While they cherish all of their plant collections, the oak collection is especially meaningful to them because it emphasizes waterwise trees and the distinctive oaks hybridized by Walter P. Cottam, which are unique to Red Butte Garden.
