Plants: Aesthetically Pleasing, Life Sustaining

Have you ever considered how we owe our lives to plants? It is because plants remove the carbon dioxide that’s toxic to humans from the air and emit life-sustaining oxygen. Plants are also the foundation of the global food web. Beyond these life-sustaining qualities, many of us also appreciate plants’ aesthetic qualities, bringing beauty to both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Reiman Gardens is dedicated to sharing the beauty of plants, and to the study of fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants — known collectively as “horticulture.” To keep up on the latest news in the Gardens, be sure to read our horticulturalist’s blog, Plant Particulars.
