The "MOBOT" is one of the most beautiful gardens in the Midwest, and well worth a trip.
There are impressive and changing seasonal displays in the main parts of the garden.
The extensive Japanese Garden was designed by a noted Japanese designer -- the Azaleas and Rhododendrons are breathtaking in late April.
The walled Ottoman Garden is filled with delightfully-scented plants surrounding a central pool.
The indoor Temperate Garden showcases numerous historically-significant tender plants from around the world that many Midwesterners would otherwise never have the opportunity to encounter (including a charming Spanish-style courtyard with standard roses).
There are gardens devoted to Victorian-style annual bedding, an Iris Garden, a Lily garden, several Rose Garden areas, a maze, well-tended vegetable-growing display plots an indoor rain forest and many other areas.
Leave time to enjoy them all, or plan for more than one trip, ideally during different seasons. Highly recommended.
