Rutger University Gardens
Rutgers Gardens (20 ha / 50 acres) are horticultural, display, and botanical gardens, including arboretums, located on the Cook Campus, Rutgers University, 112 Ryders Lane, North Brunswick in Middlesex County, New Jersey, in the United States. The gardens are open daily without fee.
The gardens were first established in 1927, and are horticultural collections arranged in garden settings. Current collections include:
* American Hollies - according to Rutgers, the largest collection of American Hollies in the world, including selections from Dr. Elwin Orton's Ilex opaca breeding programs.
* Bamboo Forest - a large grove of evergreen bamboo (Phyllostachys nuda), originally planted in the 1950s, with a winding path and bridge across a small stream.
* Donald B. Lacey Display Garden - unusual and colorful annuals, tropicals, herbs, and vegetables.
* Ella Quimby Water Conservation Terrace Gardens - demonstration of drought tolerant plants, including Amorpha canescens, Berberis, Ceanothus americanus, Hypericum 'Hidcote', Juniperus, and Hylotelephium telephium (formerly Sedum) 'Autumn Joy'.
* Ornamental Tree Collection - unusual small trees, including India Quassiawood (Picrasma ailanthoides), the state's largest Paperbark Maple (Acer griseum), a very large Persian Ironwood (Parrotia persica), and a fine Cornus kousa var. chinensis.
* Rhododendron and Azalea Garden - small trees and groundcovers, with a variety of shrubs focusing on rhododendrons. The collection started in the 1930s and now includes Cornus kousa, Davidia involucrata, Metasequoia glyptostroboides, and Rhododendron mucronulatum.
* Roy H. De Boer Evergreen Garden (1958) - fine specimens of Pinus strobus 'Pendula', Tsuga canadensis 'Sargentii', and many other cedars, pines, spruces, and firs.
* Shade Tree Collection - many mature shade trees, including Aesculus, Toona sinensis, Tetradium hupehensis, Fagus, Quercus dentata, Tilia, and Ulmus specimens.
* Shrub Collection - hybrid and species lilacs (dating from 1927) and other shrubs, including Buddleia alternifolia, Corylopsis spicata, Diervilla lonicera, and Hamamelis vernalis. The garden also includes two notable trees: Magnolia kobus and Magnolia virginiana.
* Log Cabin - The Log Cabin was built in 1936 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Today it is actively used for receptions and other events in the gardens.
Looking down upon front garden from mid-level entry landing
The front garden is set within a perfect half circle sort of amphitheater slope, with the hillside plantings corresponding to the seating. The slope was further planted with large shade tolerant screening plants such as Mexican Weeping Bamboo and Senecio cristobalensis, to provide more privacy from the street above. The slope already had mature plantings of Pinus canariensis and Phoenix canariensis which provide dappled to deep shade year round. We added more palms such as Chamaedorea plumosa and Phoenix roebellenii to further the subtropical theme. Note how the lawn border of the old fashioned plant, Bergenia crassifolia also ties in with the bold foliage look, and is a perfect accent for both foliage and cheerful winter bloom.
