National Arboretum

Not just flowers. HERE’S A PEACEFUL ZEN EXPERIENCE YOU OUGHT TO CHECK OUT. People are flocking to the National Arboretum in record numbers. Why? One reason is improvements to the grounds like the colorful, attractive and expanded plants in the Introduction Garden; the new Flowering Tree Walk; and the major efforts to improve the appearance of the collections, display gardens, and grounds by the Gardens Unit and Facilities Services. Over 14,000 different species, varieties, and cultivars are displayed in a series of world-class gardens and collections on the 446-acre campus in northeast Washington, D.C.
