Stanley M. Rowe Arboretum

Rowe Arboretum, located in Indian Hill, Ohio, is literally fifteen minutes from my house - practically in my backyard!  It's a 40 acre arboretum which was formerly the private estate of Stanley and Dorothy Rowe, who started the plant collection in 1926.

Today, there are over 900 labeled trees and plants, including conifers, lilac, oaks, and magnolias.  Visitors can stroll along the paths, enjoying the natural flora and fauna of Cincinnati.

The arboretum is open from dawn to dusk.  Admission is free.

One last thing:  Joanne Faries bestowed this Addictive Blog Award on me.  Thank you, Joanne!  I guess if you really like gardens, this blog can be addictive!

I will pass it on to Arnie at Travel Gourmande and  Elle Sees.


  1. Congratulations!
    I bet you visit those gardens often since they are so close. And free!

  2. I think that if I were you, I'd claim this arboretum as my backyard. I'm sure they wouldn't mind.

    1. LOL! Except then they'd make me take care of it!
