“To discover and share knowledge about plants and their environment in order to preserve and enrich life”

—mission of the Missouri Botanical Garden


Since 1859, the Missouri Botanical Garden has served as an oasis of botanical beauty in the city of St. Louis. It is also a hub for science, conservation, and education. We are proud to be considered one of the top three botanical gardens in the world.

Like Garden founder Henry Shaw, you can create a gift to sustain our mission into the future.
