A visit to the UNL Botanical Garden and Arboretum provides different experiences through changing seasons. Spring flowering bulbs, summer perennials, autumn foliage color, and winter textures are woven throughout the campuses to provide continuity. Yet each garden has its own special emphasis. Whether you have only a few minutes for a stroll through one garden, or a leisurely afternoon to explore them all, your time in the UNL Botanical Garden and Arboretum will be enjoyable and informative.

In addition to the specific gardens, special collections of plants are incorporated throughout the landscape, making best use of the building environment for aesthetic and educational purposes. Exceptional specimens are found throughout both campuses, making each stroll a surprising and enjoyable one.
