The Nancy Bryan Luce Herb Garden, given in memory by the Henry Luce Foundation, Inc. and dedicated on September 23, 1991, displays 92 species of European and American herbs.
The New York Botanical Garden, spanning some 250 acres of Bronx Park, was founded in 1891 on part of the grounds of the Belmont Estate, formerly owned by the tobacco magnate Pierre Lorillard, after a fund-raising campaign led by Columbia University botanist Nathaniel Lord Britton, who was inspired to emulate the Royal Botanic Gardens in London. It contains 48 different gardens and plant collections.
Galleries: Nov. 18
Exhibit listings are published on a rotating basis as space allows.
