Desert plants focus of free tour at demonstration garden

Clark County master gardeners will offer a tour of the demonstration gardens at the Lifelong Learning Center, 8050 Paradise Road, at 10 a.m. May 11.

The tour, titled “Desert Plants Come Alive,” is free and open to the public. Those attending should meet in the courtyard. Walking shoes, hats and water are recommended.

During the tour, master gardeners will discuss desert-adapted plants that can be grown in home landscapes.

The gardens contain more than 500 species of desert-appropriate landscape plants, including trees, shrubs, perennials, palms, cactuses and agaves, which are identified by botanical and common names.

The grounds are open for self-guided walks on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information, call or email the master gardener help desk at 702-257-5555 or lvmastergardeners@unce.
