Such variety of blooms and garden types here with opulent flower arrangements, prairies with waving grasses, bonsai arrangements and lily ponds that are enchanted. A beautiful sculpture by glass blower Dale Chihuly is a standout and other sculptures enhance the gardens as well. A lovely place to visit!

Being members of the Missouri Botanical Gardens, we love to visit other Botanicals. In Denver they had a "corpse plant" bloom while we were there.

The Botanical gardens are beautiful but the best part of the experience was The Corpse Flower. What an amazing plant and is something you won't see every day. With the beautiful Denver weather it was a pleasure to meander through the gardens.

Whatever the season, the Botanic Gardens is a beautiful oasis in Denver. The concerts are great and a picnic on a summer evening are special.

We spent 2 hours admiring the beautiful gardens and horses assembled fro wood. We went early and avoided the high August temperatures . It was a very pleasant morning.

Wonderful gardens but a little expensive to get into. We did enjoy the walk and it was good to smell the clean colorado mountain air
