The Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University, located on the west side of Stillwater, was originally established in 1935 as an arboretum to be used in research and teaching.  Today, the garden keeps the tradition of research and teaching alive within a 100-acre expanse that still includes an arboretum, as well as turf and nursery research centers and the studio gardens in which the weekly TV show "Oklahoma Gardening" is filmed. 

With its permanent plant collections and seasonal gardens as living laboratories, the Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University is a place to enjoy the diverse beauty that Oklahoma has to offer.  Featuring over 1,000 species of herbaceous and woody plants, there's a new variety around every corner.  Admire unique trees and shrubs as you explore the arboretum along the walking trails, then make your way to the studio gardens.

The studio gardens are definitely the highlight of the Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University.  Themed gardens can be found within the studio gardens, lending to the diversity you will find there.  In the native splendor garden, plants native to Oklahoma are showcased.  Learn how to bring plant life into a small space in the patio garden, and then observe hardy shade plants in the shade perennial garden.  The rock garden shows visitors that even a rock can be lovely with the right plants surrounding it.  Be transported to another country as you step into the Japanese garden, featuring shrubs, trees and other features that promote peace and serenity by design.  View the rock-lined water garden, complete with water lilies and fish, to see an ecosystem at work.  Guided tours are available in the studio gardens from 8:30am-4pm Monday through Friday, with the exception of Wednesday, when the studio gardens are closed for filming.
