There is just nothing to say about how wonderful and well done this garden is, just spectacular. A must see in St. Louis. Too much to describe, you will just have to come look yourself. Awesome.

This botanical garden facility is about as good as it gets to enjoy flora. Summer evenings with live music here (if you want ear-splitting rock, this is not for you) are a part of the quintessential St. Louis vibe.

Great garden with excellent displays, garden paths and archtecture. Really liked how most all trees, flowers and shrubs were labeled so you knew what you were viewing
