Current Plant Highlights
Welcome

Savannah's transforming horticultural destination, the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens is part of the University of Georgia's College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. We're 51 acres of historic plants, ornamental gardens, lakes, early 20th-century buildings and modern pick-your-own berry fields. Once a USDA plant introduction station, today we are becoming a comprehensive botanical garden.
