Kansas State University Gardens

The Conservatory, built in 1907, is representative of the Victorian architectural style typical in greenhouse construction in the late 1890’s. Approximately 300 species of plants are grown in the Conservatory’s three separate sections, with each section representing one distinct ecological region. The Conservatory is also home to approximately 10-15 different species of Butterflies. The gardens feature extensive daylily, iris, and rose collections. [ info ]
