The arboretum at flagstaff

The Arboretum at Flagstaff is a 200-acre (81 ha) arboretum that is home to 750 species of mostly drought-tolerant adapted and native plants representative of the high-desert Colorado Plateau, home to the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park. It is located 3.8 miles (6.1 km) south of U.S. Route 66 on Woody Mountain Road, on the west side of Flagstaff, Arizona, USA. The facility is located at 7,150' in elevation, making it one of the highest-elevation public gardens in the United States. The Arboretum is known for its extensive collection of the genus Penstemon.


The Arboretum was originally forest and a working ranch, and the home of Frances McAllister in the late 1960s. In 1981 she began her long-held dream of creating an arboretum when she donated the land and created its financial endowment.

The Arboretum was visited by over 23,000 people in 2009. The Arboretum is also home to the Merriam-Powell Research Station.
