Alaska Botanical Garden in Springtime

With occasional patches of snow still clinging to the shaded areas, the herb garden beds show little signs of spring in mid-May. Within two weeks however, the trees bud with flowers and transform with new growth. The gray remnants of the long Alaskan winter are swept away with the lush perennials and annuals planted and maintained by local volunteers and herb-enthusiasts.

The Alaska Botanical Garden is a non-profit organization which was first opened to the public in 1993. Situated on a 110 acre birch and spruce forest in Anchorage, Alaska, the area presently includes a number of individual gardens connected by trails. Over 1,100 perennial species and 150 native plant species are identified in the gardens, which are open year round during daylight hours.
