The safety of our community is our highest priority at Georgia State University. Out of an abundance of caution regarding the current coronavirus situation, the Native Plant Botanical Garden April Talks and April Plant Sales have been cancelled.
The garden is located on the Decatur campus of Georgia State University’s Perimeter College. The grounds are situated in a flood plain near a tributary of the South River creek. There are two main garden areas – the Native Plant Botanical Garden and the Ferns of the World. The Native Plant Garden features several areas including Shade and Sun perennials and shrubs. Many trails wind through our shade gardens. There are over 4000 species of native, rare, and endangered plants indigenous to the Southeast and US. Also featured in the Garden is the Ferns of the World exhibit which has been expanded several times. The Garden has bog plants, native trees, shrubs, vines, ferns, and perennial plants.
The Garden is open every day of the year, dawn until dusk.
