Atlanta Botanical Garden


The Atlanta Botanical Garden is a 30-acre urban oasis located in the City of Atlanta’s Midtown neighborhood.  Established in 1976, the Garden has steadily grown into an internationally recognized institution with premier horticultural displays, popular year-round exhibitions, pioneering conservation research, and inspirational STEM enrichment education.  The Garden has an extraordinary living collection of more than 122,230 plants representing 11,660 taxa and 8,150 species that speaks directly to the Garden’s mission “to develop and maintain plant collections for display, research, conservation, education, and enjoyment.”   Its temperate climate ensures 12-month outdoor interest—from the displays of cacti, succulents, and carnivorous bog specimens in the sunny Skyline Garden to the shady Gardens in Storza Woods nestled in one of the oldest hardwood canopies in Atlanta.  Special attention is given to cultivating the Garden’s five Nationally Accredited Plant Collections: Magnolia, Acer, Sarracenia, Stanhopea, and Gongora. To expand upon and leverage this collections expertise, the Garden’s Conservation and Research team recently launched the Global Conservation Consortium for Magnolias, in partnership with Botanical Gardens Conservation International (BGCI). Complementing these efforts, the team was admitted into the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in 2019 and joined the World Conservation Congress in 2020.
