Sweet little buttlercup

Worth a visit anytime of the year but dont miss late spring summer or early fall. The restaurant is a hidden gem.

One of the most amazing and beautiful places you will ever see and experiance. For a small fee you get to wonder through lush gardens, withbeautiful fountains and grounds that include a asian inspiered lake and bridge. Also make sure and feed the Koi.

I had been there with my friends during the month of march. It was'nt very impressive may be because of the time we went. It was almost end of winter. I think the best time to visit is during the time of fall. The garden was well maintained and staff was friendly and cooperative.

I have been a member for several years. I love just walking the gardens as well as the special events. Particularly the Best of Missouri market and the orchid show.

We have come here with our children several times, as on Wednesday nights during the summer there is a free concert in the Gardens. This is a very family friendly event, as admission is free after 5, and the music generally starts around 7. It is a great setting, and our family loves coming here! We are looking very forward...

If you can pull it off, I highly recommend going to one of the free concerts on Wednesday nights in the summer. What a party! Bring a picnic and wine and enjoy the stunning surroundings. Great to visit any other time as well. A gem.

The landscape is always changing as the garden evolves from season to season. Early tulips now and it just keeps getting better.

Always a treat to visit. Can't wait until the Spring bus bloom, but pretty all year. Fall colors fantastic. Tours available. Climatron special.

My daughter, her children and I visited the Garden in July 2014. We were in St. Louis for a long weekend. We really enjoyed the gardens, but we were a little rushed because of trying to put too many things on our schedule. The kids really enjoyed the train ride and even though it was really warm, we got a... More

If you are into plants or just serene wondering - this is your place. We have visited botanical gardens around the world and the only one that even came close was the one in Singapore due to the Orchid Garden.
