List of Botanic Gardens in the United States

Pam blogged her recent visit to the lovely San Antonio Botanical Garden. A comment I left led to a question about how many botanic gardens there are in the United States. I posted this link once before, but here it is again:

Wouldn't it be nice if more garden bloggers posted pictures of their local botanical gardens?

(Note: Yours may actually be a "Botanic" Garden. I see that word used a lot too.)

ADDED: Check out the the quilt garden at the North Carolina Arboretum here.

I still can't get over how many there are. In California alone, you'd have your work cut out for you to see them all.

In Texas, aside from the San Antonio garden that I blogged about, I've blogged (http://www.penick.net/digging/?p=173)---and frequently visit---the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. I've also seen the Lynn Lowrey Arboretum at Rice University, where I went to school (I never knew the campus was considered an arboretum, but it is certainly very pretty); the Umlauf Sculpture Garden in Austin, which Dawn has blogged about (http://suburbanwildlifegarden.blogspot.com/2007/05/umlauf-sculpture-garden.html); and Zilker Botanical Garden in Austin, which I keep meaning to blog about.

Thanks for reminding us about what's right under our noses. We need to get out there and appreciate them!

Yea, Green Bay has one I've never been to in 9 years...I just enjoy my own garden too much to leave it in prime bloom time. Maybe when I go to 4-10 hour shifts, I'll feel less strapped for time and blog it.
