The Birds and the Bees: How Desert Plants Reproduce

Plants that have adapted to arid conditions have many ingenious ways to propagate. Some plants produce showy, fragrant flowers that attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and bats. Once pollinated, their flowers turn into seed-bearing fruit that gets eaten by animals. But that’s not all… some desert plants become “mothers” and produce baby plants called “pups”. Others simply drop their leaves and the leaves can grow into whole new plants. Come take a tour of the Garden and learn about flowers, fruits and seeds. Take home a baby plant of your own. Activities are geared towards families with school-aged children, but younger siblings are also welcome to attend. Parents are encouraged to participate and facilitate in their children’s garden experience.
