The Henry Botanic Garden is a historic garden created by Mary Gibson Henry (1884 – 1967), a noted 20th century horticulturalist, naturalist, and skilled field botanist. The garden provides a stunning untamed oasis in the heart of Gladwyne, Pennsylvania. The garden is home to an impressive number of superb collections of prominent plant families. With a strong focus on woody plants, a visitor can expect to see Magnolias, Styrax, Hamamelis, Halesia, and Rhododendrons — as well as a notable collection of herbaceous plants. The garden features broadly varied terrain portraying a host of natural environments, from high rugged stony outcroppings and spare alpine sites, to lush dappled forests, to soothing riparian glens, to broad open meadowland.
