New York Botanical Garden
BRONX. These magnificent gardens host an exciting array of flowers, plants, trees and shrubs. The plant collection boasts over 18,000 different species from around the world, and the flower collection allows you to enjoy the daffodils, daylilies, tulips, annuals, chrysanthemums, peonies and ferns that abound here. You can also peruse the collection of endangered plants that include a tree and shrub collection and a conifer arboretum. A number of more exotic trees also punctuate the grounds, including the Japanese pagoda tree, the Kobus magnolia and tulip trees. Of course, a visit would not be complete without a visit to the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, the highlight of the Botanical Garden. Curator-led tours available. Cafe on premises.
