The 3-acre (1.2 ha) gardens were founded in 1995 by Dr. Leonard Miller, a retired dentist, and consist of a blend of American and Japanese gardening techniques. Major plantings took about 18 months to complete. In 1997 the Gardens became a non-profit organization and are now part of the Oklahoma Botanical Garden system. To be designated a botanical garden, a site must contain labeled plants, be open to the public, and contain at least 225 species.
Grassy pathways meander through more than 1,400 different types of plants, including one of the largest collections of Chamaecyparis (false cypress) in the United States, the largest collection of rhododendrons in the Southwest, 500 varieties of daylilies, 25 varieties of dogwoods, more than 50 bonsai, 75 varieties of Japanese maples, and 70 varieties of hostas, as well as a 150-foot (46 m) stream consisting of nine pools of water, and a koi pond. Plants in the American Backyard Xeriscape Garden thrive without additional watering and include annuals such as zinnias and marigolds.

Quiet and peaceful gardens to stroll through; could spend a few hours checking out all the different trees, bushes, and flowers. The Japanese garden with the pond and flowing stream leading to it was impressive. For those posting it's not a perfectly manicured botanical garden like you'd see in a large city, no it's not; it's a local garden with its own charm. I didn't mind paying $5 for the experience to discover so many different trees and plants that do well in Oklahoma's climate. It gave us some ideas for our garden back home.
Beautiful place to visit if you're in the area really nice setup and lots of improvements since the last time I was here
