Arid Regions

Our Arid gardens will display plants from some of the driest parts of the world. We want to show visitors that some plants not only grow with as little as 100mm of rainfall per year, but they thrive. The semi-arid to arid regions of the world boast fascinating plant associations, adaptations, and diversity beyond the imagination. While you’ll find plants from some of the milder climates under glass, there will be planted gardens of more temperate plants outdoors in our Geographic Gardens.

Selected Zones:

  • Mountain Ranges of Mexico
  • High Deserts of South Africa
  • Interior Central Asia
