Maybe because it is in Autumn and therefore, only a few flowers are still blossom. The panorama view however is great.

This was a "target" when we visited Davos since gardens & plants are "our thing". Unfortunately it snowed the night before we visited and the plants were covered by a thickish layer of snow. However a few flowers were visible and, from the layout etc, this confirmed to us that it is a place that we would try and re-visit a little earlier in the year

In August, much of the area is covered with black tarp as the garden is being renovated/expanded. The portion that is planted (near Thomas Mann Platz) was gorgeous.

...you might as well go, but if you are choosing between going here because of the garden and some other activity elsewhere, maybe this is not enough to be a main activity. There are pretty flowers planted along a path, both native and other plants with signs indicating what they are. There is also a small waterfall nearby, and that's it. I enjoyed my visit.

If you are visiting Shatzalp (free with the Klosters Davos card) then it is worthwhile to visit the botanical garden. You will need to climb up a semi-steep trail and you can see some of the flowers and shrubs that are on the mountain, each labelled with the name.
