The United States National Arboretum is an arboretum in Washington, D.C., operated by the United States Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service. It was established in 1927, by an act of Congress.
It is 446 acres nine miles of roadways wind through and connect the numerous gardens and collections on the campus.
The arboretum functions as a major center of botanical research. It conducts wide-ranging basic and developmental research on trees, shrubs, turf and floral plants. I feel badly that we didn't get there in the spring to see all the beautiful spring flowers but there were still beautiful things to see.
|There are some really unusual flowers. I wonder if Heavenly Father had a unique flower committee that created flowers to be used on earth.|
