For accessioned plants at the Arnold Arboretum, life begins at the Dana Greenhouses. From testing how to coax seeds of novel species to germinate, to re-propagating plant lineages important to history and research, propagation keeps our Living Collections in continuous renewal. The Arboretum carefully documents plant production activities, protocols, and experiments, providing vital historical information on our plants and public horticulture. Since the launch of the Campaign for the Living Collections, plant production staff have shepherded newly collected plants gathered in expeditions both close to home and across the globe. Learn more about the journey of accessioned plants from seed to tree on a greenhouse tour offered the first Tuesday of every month.
