Wellesley College Botanic Gardens

The Wellesley College Botanic Gardens encompass the Margaret C. Ferguson Greenhouses, the Alexandra Botanic Garden, and the H. H. Hunnewell Arboretum. The Margaret C. Ferguson Greenhouses contain seasonal displays as well as permanent collections. Here, you can experience plant life from the deserts of Mexico and Africa to the rain forests of Malaysia and Brazil. The Alexandra Botanic Garden has specimen trees and shrubs from around the world in a picturesque landscape. The Silver Thread, a small brook, winds through the garden from a waterfall to Paramecium Pond. The H. H. Hunnewell Arboretum has several different habitats, including a maple swamp, meadow, and fragments of different forest types, with mostly native species. Other specialized gardens include a green roof planted with native species, a dwarf conifer garden, a butterfly garden, and our Edible Ecosystem Teaching Garden. http://www.wellesley.edu/wcbg
