Description

McCrory Gardens is a botanical garden managed and maintained by the Department of Plant Sciences at South Dakota State University.

In McCrory Garden, more than 25 acres of flowers, trees, shrubs and grass are displayed in a harmonious setting, promoting education and the development of new varieties. Additionally, the 45-acre Botanical Garden is designated as the South Dakota State Botanical Garden, where various types of trees and shrubs have been scientifically researched and made public.

But don’t pick flowers, dig plants, or cut flowers. Your fingers may tingle because you want to cut the withered flowers, but be patient. Most plants have small identification tags.

History

Development began in the early 1960s in the formal garden now known as McCrory Gardens. Most of the ornamental plants used for research and education are located on the SDSU campus.
