Durango Botanic Gardens

Log in

The Elevation Grass Collection was planned for installation in 2020, but the Covid 19 pandemic and the inability to hold fundraising activities put plans on hold until spring of 2021.

This garden will showcase ornamental grasses in a variety of sizes, colors, shapes, and bloom times. This garden will also include decorative boulders. Some of the varieties to be on display include several species of Bluestem, 'Sea Urchin' Fescue, Pink Muhly Grass, Indian Grass, and Switchgrass. It is hoped that the average homeowner will draw inspiration from these underutilized and water-wise grasses.

Once completed, this garden will create a beautifully finished continuous transition between the Crevice Garden, the Mountain Thyme Sundial, and the Cindy Smart Miniature Tree Garden.
