This garden on the banks of the Red
Cedar River is a jewel for the student of horticulture or
botany. Although the setting is beautiful, the garden is
really a collection of plants from all over the world
organized by family or use. All plants used for production
of dyes are gathered together as well as the members of the
legume family. There is even a group of poisonous plants.
Don't touch the poison ivy! All the plants are neatly
labeled and they include tropical and subtropical plants
that they take into the greenhouse for the winter. A nice
place to study plants or just sit and read a book while
ducks quack away nearby.
Also on campus are the
Gardens which includes the magnificent
4-H Children's Garden. The
Clarence Lewis Landscape Arboretum is
well worth the visit too. There is also a nice, small garden
and ponds at the MSU
Radiology building about a mile or two away.
