Several varieties bloom along the natural wash.

The Demonstration & Test Gardens at University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Outdoor Education Center are beginning to bloom. You can see a variety of desert flowers—penstemons, California poppies and blue bells, desert marigolds and primrose and more— springing up in the natural wash created in the Gardens.

University-trained Master Gardeners offer tours of the Gardens each Friday at 10 a.m. Or you can stop by anytime, Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. for a self-guided tour.

The Demonstration & Test Gardens are located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev. For more information, contact the Master Gardeners at 702-257-5555.
