Discover the over 40 outdoor gardens at Denver Botanic Gardens either in person or from the comfort of home. Every day brings new blooms, fruit and vistas on the 20+ acres.
The listed plants are ones selected for their flowers, fruit or leaf colors, or texture in late summer. As we move into autumn, enjoy the rich colors in the waterlily ponds and annual display areas. Many late flowering species, such as dahlia and members of the aster family brighten up the gardens as well. Leaves are beginning to turn colors on trees with the shortening of days and cooler night temperatures. Autumn blooming bulbs also start to pop up in Shady Lane and the Rock Alpine Garden in September.
