The Wellesley College Botanic Gardens are located in Wellesley, Massachusetts. The Alexandra Botanic Garden has specimen trees and shrubs from around the world in a picturesque landscape. A tiny brook winds through the garden from a waterfall to Paramecium Pond. The H. H. Hunnewell Arboretum contains several different habitats, including a maple swamp, meadow, and fragments of different forest types, with mostly native species. Other specialized gardens include a bog garden, a dwarf conifer garden, a butterfly garden, and the Edible Ecosystem Teaching Garden. The outdoor gardens are open daily, dawn to dusk. The new Global Flora Conservatory is a showcase of living beauty highlighting plant form, as well as a new node for interdisciplinary science research and teaching, and an innovative example of sustainable design. Global Flora is closed to the public until construction of Wellesley College’s Science Center is complete at the end of 2021.
