Founded in 1968, the Iowa Arboretum has become Iowa’s premier public garden. Located near Luther, the 40 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds features plants, both native and introduced to Iowa. Visitors walking the circular trail system can see the Arboretum’s major collections of trees, shrubs and flowers along with significant collections of dwarf conifers, hostas and daylilies. The children’s Garden will educate the youngest of guests with a secret tunnel, one-room schoolhouse playhouse and gardens. From the main 40 acres, visitors can stroll along extensive trails in a native Iowa woodland and restored prairie. Modern facilities are available for hosting meetings, retreats, parties and weddings. Find unique home and garden décor at the Arboretum’s gift shop. Special events, educational workshops and plant sales are offered throughout the year. Guided tours are available for individuals of all ages (call for a reservation).
