Places to go in Riverside: the UCR Botanical Garden

The UCR Botanical Garden is a truly wonderful place with terrific collections of native plants as well as plants from similarly arid places, such as South Africa and Australia. Roses, irises, temperate deciduous trees, and a subtropical fruit trees round out the specimens on hand. You'll get great ideas here for plantings to spruce up your yard as well as your table. After all, this is Riverside, so you should be able to feed yourself out of your yard!

The fall and spring plant sales at the botanical garden are a local tradition. But warning, members get first dibs, so you should join to get a shot at the rarer specimens. Serious plant lovers come with their own garden carts.
