Travel & Leisure cited our “idyllic gardens of hydrangea, lilacs, and tree peonies” and “courtyard devoted to fragrant trees and shrubs” among the reason to be named to their list of America’s Most Beautiful College Campuses.

Philadelphia Inquirer Garden Writer Virginia Smith also noted on her recent visit to the Arboretum that “I was struck, as I am every time, at the obvious care and affection that goes into everything here – from the containers in front of the Arboretum offices to the labels identifying plants and trees.” Look for a piece by Virginia Smith in the Inquirer next Friday about our organic lawn.
