Our Gardens. Our Home.
You will find many specialty gardens and plant collections that are woven together to create the Kansas State University Gardens.

Current plant collections included daylilies, iris and roses. Some future collections will be of peonies and hostas. Some of the plant collections are used as an element in the design of the specialty gardens. The daylily and iris collections are located in the Conservatory Garden, which is part of Phase II, North of the Historic Conservatory. The rose collection is located directly east of the Historic Conservatory.

Three specialty gardens are located in the Visitor Center Garden located south of the Historic Conservatory and west of the Visitor Center. These gardens are the Cottage, Butterfly and Native/Adaptive Plant Gardens.

Be a part of the future by helping develop the Alumni Garden, Campus Creek Garden, Conservatory Garden and Children's Garden.
