Garden tour features colors of autumn
University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners conduct tour
Take a walk through the demonstration gardens this fall as University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardeners explain the colors of autumn. The tour is free to the public.
Join the Master Gardeners on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 10 a.m. for a tour of plants which have great color when the weather cools. Add shades of red, yellow, orange and purple to your garden with desert-hardy pistache, pomegranate, three leaf sumac regal mist and more.
A plant list will be provided to attendees. Wear walking shoes to enjoy the gardens surrounding the Cooperative Extension office at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev. Enter though the west side gate to meet in the courtyard of the Lifelong Learning Center. Participants should come dressed and prepared for being outdoors.
The Master Gardeners continue to offer weekly tours of the entire Demonstration and Test Gardens each Friday at 10 a.m. The gardens contain over 1000 species of desert appropriate landscape plants, including: trees, shrubs, perennials, palms, cacti and agaves. Plants are identified by botanical and common names. For the weekly tours, meet in the Front Reception area near the Master Gardener Help Desk. The grounds are also open for self-guided walks weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
