Welcome to 

Hortus Arboretum & Botanical Gardens

Our Mission

Located in the Mid-Hudson Valley countryside of Stone Ridge, New York, Hortus  Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is a family-run arboreta and botanic garden whose mission is to sustain the native, unusual and historic plant life of our area and serve as a vital educational resource for the public.  We are also focused on saving rare and endangered plants worldwide to ensure that species diversity lives on. 

We welcome garden groups and individuals to come to visit Hortus Arboretum and Botanical Gardens! The gardens have been growing for over 20 years, with several specific collections such as the Nut grove, Chinese garden, and Japanese shade garden, in addition to a large collection of unusual edibles and hardy cacti. We have the most diverse selection of plants in Ulster County. Hortus Arboretum exists as a ‘Living Textbook’ of plants that can be grown in the Hudson Valley.

Come visit!

The gardens are open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on weekends. Learn about our events HERE

General admission is $5
