Georgeson Botanical Garden of the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station Farm Review

When most people think of Alaska vegetation, they conjure up images of flat, treeless tundra, so the amazing variety of native and cultivated flowers on exhibit here is often unexpected. This is where researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks study Interior Alaska's unique, short, but intense midnight-sun growing season. The results are spectacular. The grounds feature about 1,000 perennials. The nonstop daylight brings out rich and vibrant colors. The best times to visit are from mid-June to late August.
