Missouri Botanical Garden mission
One of the highlights of our trip to Missouri was going to the Missouri Botanical Garden. I have used their website often when researching new plants I am interested in. It is extremely informative and easy to use.
The Garden, founded in 1859 by Henry Shaw. It is the nation's oldest botanical garden in continuous operation and a National Historic Landmark with a center for botanical research and science education, as well as an oasis in the city of St. Louis. There are 79 acres of beautiful gardens, including a 14-acre Japanese strolling garden, a geodesic dome conservatory, Henry Shaw's original 1850 estate home, and one of the world's largest collections of rare and endangered orchids.
Here is a small sampling of what the garden has to offer:
If you are ever in St Louis, I highly recommend a visit to the Missouri Botanical Garden. You will not be disappointed .
Have a fun day!
