The water gardens are home to the aquatic plant collection, which includes waterlilies, water platters, lotus and canna. A system of pools meanders through the Gardens and provides backdrops for many other gardens.
Internationally Inspired Gardens
Japan, China, South Africa and the Tropics are some of the countries and regions that inspire our garden designs and plant selection. Many of these gardens include plants from other steppe regions that are similar to Denver in climate and soils.
