Visiting the Garden

The Garden is a great place to visit any time of the year, but summer and fall are stand-out times.

Check out the Children's Garden (and all of its individual gardens), the Hydrangea Garden, the Butterfly Garden, the Hosta Garden, the pathway and borders above the Hayden Conference Center, and the (in the process of renovation) Flower Display Garden for interesting plants and great ideas for your own garden.

But also, visit the Geology Museum's garden (the Lawrence Sutherland Family Garden) and the Fran Hanson Discovery Center's Terrace Garden, perennial garden beds, and Snell Vegetable Garden. All have interesting selections of perennials and woodies (and edibles in the kitchen garden) to discover.

My wife and I visited this morning. Each week something new is blooming and changing. It is always beautiful. Our thanks to all the staff and volunteers who keep this so beautiful.
On a side note, is there someone we can contact to help us identify plants we discover which aren't labeled?

I'm glad that you and your spouse enjoy the Garden! It's a wonderful place.

Certainly, you can contact us (SCBG staff) through either the address with questions, or ask us individually.

Our e-mail addresses are on the website; we'll be glad to try and help you identify unlabeled plants.
