Mary Livingston Ripley Garden
A quiet oasis located between the Arts and Industries Building and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden is a horticultural display of hundreds of varieties of annual and perennial plants, unique hanging baskets, and unusual trees and shrubs.

One of the most glorious harbingers of spring, Hamamelis ‘Arnold Promise’ is in full glorious bloom in the Mary Livingston Ripley Garden. The blooming of the Witch hazels is a sure sign that the end of winter is near!
Janet's hellebores in the Ripley Garden look like they are starting to think about blooming in the next few weeks. Bring it on spring!
