The fragrance, color and incomparable beauty of roses charm The Sarah J. McCarthey & Family Rose Garden at Red Butte Garden. Forget about marching through rows of labeled cultivars. Here you meander through a diverse presentation of informally planted varieties—hybrid teas and floribundas to climbers and miniatures—as they mix with companion plants to enchant all who visit. The Rose Garden boasts color-specific sections, from a blush-toned Wedding Garden to a robustly red Marin Overlook.

Formality enjoys a surprising twist in Red Butte Garden’s  Ruth P. Eccles Herb Garden, where loose curves—rather than traditional diamonds and squares—shape a boxwood parterre woven through lush beds of fragrant herbs and edible flowers.
