Established in Palm Springs since 1938, this privately-owned arboretum was created to share the beauty and extraordinary varieties of desert plants. ​The more than 3000 varieties of desert trees, plants, and cacti come from around the world and range in size from miniature to giants.

Plant displays in the one-acre gardens are designed in concentrated habitats along a nature trail. Specimens have been sourced from all over the world.

The Moortens are desert plant specialists and this is their residence estate, with a colorful history. Moorten Botanical Garden is a living museum of desert lore with glistening crystals, colorful rocks, ancient fossils, and pioneer and gold mining relics among the flora.
