Montana Town Home To One Of The Best Botanical Gardens In America

When thinking about Montana a botanical garden is probably not the first thing you think of.

A big reason why is our long winter months which would means a very short growing season here in the Treasure State.

However, anyone that has visited our lovely state would tell you that during that short growing season we have some of the most beautiful wildflowers and plants of any state in America.

Surprisingly enough there are quite a few botanical gardens in Montana, or at least more than I would have thought there would be.

According to the website Best Things Montana there are actually six botanical gardens, but only one has been named the best in the state.

Where Is The Most Beautiful Botanical Garden In Montana?

When it comes to the most beautiful botanical garden in Montana, the website Cheapism says you need to head to Jefferson City.


There you will find the Tizer Botanical Garden, and this is what they have to say about it,

Plants that flourish during Montana's short growing year include vegetables, roses, herbs, and wildflowers. The gardens feature plants for hummingbirds and butterflies and a meditation space with a large stone Buddha.

If that is to far a drive for a weekend getaway there are some other great places to visit, like DanWalt Gardens which is called "Billings Best Kept Secret."

There is also the Lewistown Community Labyrinth Garden or the Memorial Rose Garden in Missoula.

While our growing season might be short, there is no shortage of beauty during it.
