Memphis Botanic Garden is now home to one of only four Conifer Reference Gardens in the state of Tennessee.
The Conifer Collection, established in 1981, and updated in 2002, has been
recently groomed, labeled and mapped, by a diligent team of volunteers led by
MBG Adult Education Coordinator Laurie Williams. This Collection consists of
approximately 300 individual plants
and includes 100 different species.
In order to be certified as a reference
collection, the conifer garden has to meet American Conifer Society
requirements that include being an institutional
ACS member, open to the public, and
have a minimum of 30 conifers representing at least 8 genera, labeled, in its
Conifer Reference Garden now serves as an educational resource for both
professionals and home gardeners living in the area.
