Purdue University Horticulture Gardens
625 Agriculture Mall Drive, West Lafayette, IN 47907
The Purdue University Horticulture Gardens (0.5 acres) are botanical gardens located on the Purdue University campus, adjacent to the Horticulture Building. The gardens are a living classroom. There, university classes meet, student workers and volunteers get hands-on training in garden maintenance, and visitors learn about garden plants and gardening techniques. Established in 1982, the gardens now display a wide diversity of plants, including nearly 200 species of perennial flowers and foliage plants, and over 300 cultivars of annual flowers and garden vegetables. Collections include peonies, daylilies, hosta, spring-flowering bulbs, and ornamental grasses. Open to the public year-round, seven days a week and tours are available.
