Gardeners come to the Matthaei Botanical Gardens to marvel at the beautifully maintained display gardens, browse books in the shop, and perhaps add a little green to their thumbs. You could spend an entire afternoon exploring the more formal areas, but the entire property has been developed as an education in Michigan flora. Cut through the middle by Fleming Creek; the trails here wander through an exquisite collection of native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers.
