I spent the entire afternoon in the arboretum. Saw lots of birds and butterflies. Mom's with strollers were a plenty. Beautiful afternoon.

Not unlike the gardens you find at some of the great country houses of England, you will find the Morris Arboretum offers some unusual extras. The "fernery" is something you rarely see in England, and this one is particularly well maintained and artistically planted and...More

Look for Charlie Mazza, a horticulturist from Cornell university. He takes people around highlighting and provide what I think quality information about the trees and shrubs in the Arboretum. If you are walking there from chestnut hill west station, suggest the Germantown avenue route as...More

With an extensive collection of trees rarely found in Pennsylvania (including Redwoods!), Morris Arboretum provides a home to countless birds and thus is the best getaway from city and street noise for travelers. You can walk the grounds in an hour, but you should really...More

I'm going to be in the area at the end of February. Is there going to be much to see? Or should I wait more until the spring?
