Native Planting

2022 Home Garden Tour

Friday, July 8 & Saturday, July 9

9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Featuring charming rural garden gems in Oregon, WI

Olbrich’s 2022 Home Garden Tour features seven charming rural garden gems and a native prairie restoration in a county park, nestled in Oregon, WI. Take a serene 20 minute drive south from Madison’s city center to an inviting neighborhood community away from the hustle and bustle. A plethora of pollinator-filled gardens brimming with native plants and down-to-earth gardeners awaits you. From a farmette filled with flowers to a shady sanctuary with a cascading rock waterfall, these rustic garden retreats provide a quiet paradise for all of nature’s creatures.

NEW! A Wisconsin native plant is highlighted in each garden along with some of the insects it supports. Olbrich Botanical Gardens’ 2022 annual theme, Native Plants. Natural Wonders., emphasizes the importance of incorporating native plants in garden designs to support local Wisconsin ecosystems.

Did you know the featured shagbark hickory tree (Carya ovata) supports 186 species of butterflies/moths as a caterpillar host plant including Luna and Cecropia moths!
