Open to the public on weekends, the arboretum features more than 2,500 varieties of trees and woody plants, many of them rare, along with other fragrant plants and flowers. There’s even a National Hosta Display Garden. Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic and listen to the new 42-stop arboretum audio tour.
