Year-Round

The distinguished tree and shrub collections of The New York Botanical Garden offer something beautiful to enjoy in every season. The mature oaks that provide the arboreal framework of the Garden, as well as historic plantings such as Tulip Tree Allée, inspire awe year-round. Throughout the landmark landscape you’ll find rare specimens and the latest varieties of ornamental small trees and shrubs. In addition to crabapples, cherries, and magnolias that grace the grounds, the Garden’s birch, stewartia, dogwood, winter-hazel, witch-hazel, holly, and redbud collections offer up colorful flowers, foliage, and bark.
