About the garden

Sitting on eight acres, with six greenhouses comprising around a third of an acre under glass, Marsh Botanical Garden offers support for researchers, faculty and students at Yale, as well as an informative and eye-catching experience for visitors.

In the summer, the naturalistic beds and wildflower plantings provide color and attract birds and butterflies. In spring, bulb displays, early flowering shrubs, and trees add color to the season. Our plantings include many woody plants with surprising fall color, both from leaf and fruit display.
