Managed plant collections are what sets botanical gardens apart from other gardens, parks, and green spaces. Records for each of the plants in our garden are maintained in a way similar to items in a museum. Because of this, the plants in our collection have more than simply aesthetic value; they have educational, historical, and scientific value that plants without a known provenance do not.


Join Idaho Botanical Garden docents on a free 1 1/4 hour-long tour of the grounds. This walk introduces you to the history of the Garden and the major features of the grounds. No need for reservations, just arrive 15 minutes before the tour start time. 


Tours are held every other Thursday and Saturday, 10a to 12p. Beginning May 19th through October 20th. Call 208-343-8649 for more information. 

Photography& Filming

Thank you for choosing the Garden as your photography destination. We believe the Garden is a special place and a spectacular location to capture the beauty of our hard work and dedication to horticulture.

We require all photographers to schedule photo shoots with the Garden, due to other events taking place.


Best Garden in Idaho! A garden built on passion for the growing botanical world. Beautiful place during winter or spring and summer…many cool events and is handily located next to historic old prison as well as 5 minutes from down town.

This is small in acreage, but is just packed with flowers of all different kinds. I took far more pictures here than I did on all of the rest of my trip to Idaho combined

The individual gardens were wonderfully marked with botanical information and some history. It was a refreshing way to meander on a hot day in cool shade and seeing a huge variety of flowers and foliage. The many volunteers were very helpful.
