Moorten Botanical Garden - Visit Palm Springs tag-img


The Moorten family, all desert plant specialists, turned their residence estate into a living museum of desert lore. There’s something of interest for everyone with glistening crystals, colorful rocks, ancient fossils, pioneer and gold-mine relics.

The garden party areas are available for Civic, Cultural and Social events, such as weddings, receptions, art exhibits, concerts, classes, meetings, memorials, mixers and fashion shows. Ideal for photography, television programs and movie site locations.

Long established in beautiful Palm Springs, California, since 1938, this private arboretum was created to share with everyone the beauty and extraordinary varieties of desert plants from around the world. Featuring desert trees and cacti from miniatures to giants.

It is a classic collection of more than 3000 varieties of plants designed in concentrated habitats along a natural trail. Also, a special exhibition of quite rare plants called “The World’s First Cactarium”. (a word they coined in this profession).

The Moorten’s Mediterranean style home, called “Cactus Castle” is in the Palm Grove Oasis, often described as a haven of tranquility. The charm of old Palm Springs.
