  • Located in Madison, Wisconsin, this 2.5 acre garden seems to be at least four times as big. Chock full of perennials and annuals for all conditions, the gardens are both a botanical and aesthetic marvel. Gardens include the Daylily Collection, Rock Garden, English Garden, Edible Garden, and several others incorporating such features as pergolas, waterfalls, and bridges. To top it all off, when we visited in the summer of 1996 they had the most amazing mass planting of Belamcanda chinensis that I've ever seen (it's one of my favorite perennials). This is definitely a place to visit if you're ever heading through Southern Wisconsin.   [Google cache]
  • Located in southeast Pennsylvania, this 1050 acre display garden has over 11,000 different plant types in 20 outdoor gardens and 4 acres of heated greenhouses. Their site will give provide you with direction, a schedule of events, a history of Longwood Gardens, and some pretty good pages on Integrated Pest Management.   [Google cache]
  • Located in Sarasota, Florida and called "a supernova in the constellation of botanical gardens" by Duane Campbell, this non-profit organization specializes in tropical plants with an emphasis on epiphytes (plants that grow on other plants). Their 11 acre grounds and seven greenhouses are home to a collection of over 6000 orchids and 20,000 plants.    [Google cache]
  • Located 360km north of the Arctic Circle in Norway, these gardens are comprised of an Arctic-Alpine garden and Arboretum at the Holt Research Station. The sun doesn't set at all from May 15 to July 27, but it's compensated by total darkness between November 21 and January 17. And you thought that the growing conditions in YOUR yard were bad!   [Google cache]
  • Visiting Vancouver, B.C. Canada? If so, stop on by the VanDusen Botanical Garden! Started in 1975 out of an abondoned golf course, the gardens cover 55 acres and represent over 7500 plant types. If you can only visit online, be sure to check out their walking tour, list of plants in bloom (seasonal), and calendar of events.   [Google cache]
