United States Botanic Garden

Steeped in history, rich with tradition, the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) is a living plant museum that informs visitors about the importance, and often irreplaceable value, of plants to the well-being of humans and to earth's fragile ecosystems.

One of the oldest botanic gardens in North America, the USBG is an accredited living plant museum with the mission to demonstrate the aesthetic, cultural, economic, therapeutic and ecological importance of plants. From roses to orchids, the rainforest to the Mid-Atlantic, rare and endangered plants to the latest in home gardens, a world of plants and environments await you in the permanent exhibits and gardens. Any time of year, you'll see something beautiful at the USBG, including more than 75 Project BudBurst target species.
