The hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery have long been recognized as a place of honor for those who have served the United States. The cemetery's 639 acres blend formal and informal landscapes and more than 10,000 native and exotic trees. Intimate gardens enhance the beauty and sense of peace.

Arlington's Horticulture staff has selected some seasonal highlights of Memorial Arboretum based on their beauty, wildlife value or sustainability. We hope that each highlight will inspire you to visit the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, join us in a landscape tour and learn about our diverse collection of plant species.
