Multiple locations on Storrs campus
While Yale University was Connecticut’s first land grant university, the designation was removed and transferred to the property that is today UCONN. The University has much to offer the plant lover, with its Plant Biodiversity Conservatory and Research Core and its extensive array of greenhouses and plant collections, the Plant Science and Landscape Architecture Facilities and the Sid Waxman Conifer collection just down the road from campus. From home, you may also explore the Plant Database while researching for future acquisitions for your landscape.
