Managed plant collections are what sets botanical gardens apart from other gardens, parks, and green spaces. Records for each of the plants in our garden are maintained in a way similar to items in a museum. Because of this, the plants in our collection have more than simply aesthetic value; they have educational, historical, and scientific value that plants without a known provenance do not. This is one of the many ways that the Idaho Botanical Garden benefits the public, the horticulture industry, science and education interests, and the botanical garden community at large.
