Concierge.com's insider take:
This is one of the best gardens you will ever see, possibly because it's so full of local plants. There are giant saguaros, the type of cactus that can hold up to 1,000 gallons of water, and succulents like aloe plants that are so tall (15 feet) that they look like they're from a Star Trek episode. Don't miss the desert flowers, either, which are achingly beautiful.
