Anyone who has had a bad day improved by a walk in a park or who has deeply inhaled the fragrance of flowers and felt their workaday cares slip away knows that gardens are good for the soul. These seven American botanical gardens offer that kind of peaceful retreat: a place to wander about, appreciate natural beauty and recharge depleted batteries. But as botanical gardens they offer something more—an education about the Earth’s amazing variety of plants and what makes individual species unique. Each of the gardens listed below offers an uplifting experience for both mind and spirit. See for yourself.
