KAYSVILLE — This spring, something new is blooming in Kaysville. 

The USU Botanical Center will be holding free tours of all its gardens on June 8 from 9 a.m. to noon. Participants will also be able to get a first look at Sol Dancer, a new flower that’s the first result of a long-term breeding program at the center. 

“It has wildflower origins,” said USU Horticulture Extension Agent Britney Hunter. “It’s been adapted to survive in our landscape.” 

Sol Dancer will be at the Utah House, where guests can pick up a map and choose which gardens to visit.  A member of the Davis County Master Gardener Program will be on hand in all the gardens to answer questions. 

“All the gardens are in bloom,” said Hunter. “It’s a great time to walk through.”

The Utah House is located at 920 S. 50 West in Kaysville.
