Orton Botanical Garden, also known as Plantasia Cactus Garden, is 5 acre garden in Twin Falls.
Expertly planted, the grounds demonstrate drought tolerant plants in a beautiful and educational way. The plants include many cacti, yuccas & Idaho native plants. Situated on the northerly fringes of the Great Basin Desert, these plants thrive and put on a stunning spring flower display. The colors are stunning against the desert landscape. Stop, smell the cactus, and enjoy the bees and butterflies zoom around the vibrant plants.
Plants are available to purchase at the garden. They are fairly priced and raised by the best of the gardeners. Another way to support the owners is by tipping. There is a box at the entrance to do so, and we highly recommend because we know how hard the Orton’s work to keep this place beautiful!
During the winter, the gardens light up with thousands of multi-colored lights. The Orton Botanical Garden is a 501c3 and is open Fridays and Saturdays during the summer and by appointment.
