Thanks for taking time to write this review. I'm surprised you made it through so quickly. Most people seem to spend about two hours here on days we don't have events. I hope our staff oriented you properly and point out destinations in the Garden....More

Welcome to the neighborhood. Glad you found us and hope you will become a member. A membership allows you free unlimited daytime admission and discounts on special events, in The Garden Store and for continuing education classes. We believe its a great value.

The gardens & waterfalls were absolutely beautiful! We had a wonderful experience following the path and taking pictures. The orchids in the greenhouse were my favorite. Very exquisite orchids like I've never seen before!

Beautiful gardens. Easy walk. Loved the orchids, and there were succulents, palms, and other plants I've never seen. It was so beautiful. The gift shop and wine bar was very nice also.

Beautifully done arboretum! The staff is friendly and helpful. The fountains, sculptures, and grounds are well maintained. The Orchid Conservatory was my favorite. Be sure to visit the garden store for botanically themed gifts.

Thanks so much. We love to hear "oh wow" when people talk about us. The American Horticultural Society program is a great way to gain admission to ours and other gardens around the country.

perfect wedding in the white garden. Sun was a little bright at 6 pm for the guests in late May. Lovely cocktail reception at the fountain after the ceremony
