The Polly Hill Arboretum is a 70 acre public garden on State Road in West Tisbury. The Arboretum is the result of the life’s work of horticulturist Polly Hill (1907-2007), who started putting together her plant collections in 1958.
The Polly Hill Arboretum is home to collections of rare plants from around the world as well as:
- Polly’s famous North Tisbury azaleas
- The stewartia collection designated a “national collection” by the North American Plant Collection Consortium (NAPCC)
- … and more …
The arboretum’s living collections of over 3,000 plants are labeled to provide basic information about the plants.
