The Louisville Arboretum features trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants which are displayed for educational purposes, scientific study, personal enjoyment and to foster an appreciation of plants. The focus is on trees and shrubs that thrive in the semi-arid climate of Louisville. The Xeric Demonstration Garden provides a display of perennials and grasses that have been selected for their ability to be self-sustaining in this environment. All of the trees, shrubs and plants, including the Xeric Demonstration Garden are labeled with common and botanical names, which makes the Arboretum an ideal place to gather inspiration for your own yard.
The Arboretum pergola may be rented for events May - September. For more information, please contact Dru Tieben (303.335.4776).
