To limit the risk of transmitting COVID-19 coronavirus, the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) has changed its operations. The Conservatory and gated outdoor gardens are temporarily closed to the public, while Bartholdi Park and the Terrace Gardens remain open. Please monitor this website for updates to operating status. Many resources can be accessed online, including educational materials, virtual tours, informational videos, and our winter programs will all be online. Connect with resources from home at www.USBG.gov/AtHome.
The horticulture staff at the U.S. Botanic Garden has an abundance of knowledge about plants. Our experts occasionally share gardening tips and horticultural expertise on common houseplants and growing techniques in the Mid-Atlantic.
If you have questions about a plant in your garden, please feel free to reach out to our Plant Hotline. You can leave a message at (202) 226-4785 or send us an email, which will be forwarded to the appropriate person for a response.
