Learn More about Plants on the Museum Grounds

Welcome to the Plant Guide at Crystal Bridges. Most of the plants at Crystal Bridges are native to our region. Others are cultivars of native species bred to provide a wide variety of bloom, foliage, and color from spring through fall. This searchable guide will provide information on many of the plants blooming at Crystal Bridges, along with tips from Museum horticulturalists for using these species in your home garden. We will be adding new plants to the guide regularly, so come back often.
