For a lovely day trip to a beautiful garden dedicated to education and research of native plants, we highly recommend Mt. Cuba Center in Delaware.

Set on 550 acres, the garden not only offers beautiful grounds to explore both on your own or with a knowledgeable guide, but also numerous classes and certifications in various aspects of gardening and conservation.

Their “trial garden”, where they plant and observe dozens of native species, is completely open for guests to see.

The native plants are meticulously labelled throughout the rest of the garden as well, and guides are stationed at various points to answer questions.  In a time when support of pollinators has never been more important, Mt. Cuba Center proves it can be both accessible and beautiful to plant native species.
