This gar­den was named after the Devo­nian’s for­mer direc­tor, Pa­trick Sey­mour. He over­saw the de­vel­op­ment of the Devo­nian for 25 years (1971-1996). It was Sey­mour’s di­rec­tion and in­flu­ence that cre­ated much of the gar­dens you see here to­day.

Breath­tak­ing is the only way to de­scribe one of the largest alpine gar­dens in North Amer­ica, dis­played across five acres. Alpines are plants that grow about the tree­line of the moun­tains and this gar­den is filled with these unique and in­trigu­ing plants. Early spring is a won­der­ful time to ex­plore this gar­den as many of these plants flower early. Don’t miss Con­nie’s Se­cret Gar­den at the north end of the Alpine Gar­den.

Cre­ated in the kaiyou or strolling gar­den style the Ku­ri­moto Ja­panese Gar­den is one of the few Ja­panese gar­dens es­tab­lished in north­ern lat­i­tudes. Us­ing au­then­tic de­sign, gar­den­ers in­cor­po­rated
