Where do I find information about the plants?
Plants in the garden are labeled with the scientific name, cultivar and common name. Visit Plant Evaluation Data on our website and use the search function to find where the plant was purchased, when it was planted, and any notes Dr. Stanley has recorded.
Why are visits limited to Fridays?
We have a small staff, and their workdays are busy with planting, mulching and maintaining the gardens. They often use heavy equipment, so for safety reasons we must limit the time the gardens are open to the public.
Does Arborcrest allow photographs and videos to be taken?
Absolutely! We encourage you to take pictures for your personal use — either for ideas in your own garden, or simply to remember your visit with us.
Drones are not allowed. Portfolio, product and model photography/videography is not allowed, and photos may not be used for commercial purposes.
May we schedule weddings or events in the garden?
Unfortunately, we do not have the staff, facilities or parking to accommodate events at this time. However, Arborcrest is a lovely place to get engaged!
