Idaho Native Plant Garden

In partnership with the Pahove Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society, IBG developed the Idaho Native Plant Garden in 1990.

The objective is to demonstrate a selection of Idaho’s diverse flora and to educate visitors about our botanical heritage and the importance of native plants. This garden features an ever-expanding list of native grasses, forbs, trees, and shrubs, with a focus on plants that thrive in our high desert climate.


A small pond and waterfall sit near the center of the garden and showcase a selection of native wetland plants. A petrified log found in the Owyhee Mountain Range, which was donated to the garden in 2015, reveals a layer of our region’s deep biological history. Former First Lady, “Lady Bird” Johnson, taught that native plants “give us a sense of where we are in this great land.” The Idaho Native Plant Garden gives us a taste of the great biological diversity that Idaho offers.
