Georgeson Botanical Garden at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) is open from Memorial Day weekend in May to Labor Day weekend in September every year, 8am-8pm.
The five acre garden hosts a variety of research and educational programs in subarctic horticulture. Research at the garden involves a variety of plants including annual flowers, vegetables and perennial ornamentals with an emphasis on Alaska native plants.
Since 2007, a cut-flower export program, centered on peonies, has taken advantage of Alaska's northern environment. Many flowers bloom here later than other regions, providing a competitive advantage on world markets.
