About Us

Orton Botanical Garden, Inc. is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) non profit botanical garden.  Our board of directors directs the affairs of the garden. We are located at the northern edge of the Great Basin Desert in Twin Falls, Idaho.  Our five acre garden demonstrates drought tolerant plants to include many cacti, yuccas, nolinas and many Idaho native plants such as wild buckwheats (Eriogonum) and penstemons.

We sell plants both by mail order and at the garden.  All proceeds from plant sales go to maintain and improve the garden.

The garden is located at 867 Filer Ave W in Twin Falls, Idaho and is open from April 1 through Nov 15.  Visitors are welcome, but must make an appointment by contacting us by email at or by telephone at 208-734-7959.
