More than just a pretty place

The group got its start in 1900 with the founders of the Society for the Protection of Native Plants. This group eventually evolved into the New England Flower Society. They wanted to conserve the native flora of the area. Today, the society is recognized as one of the leading plant conservation organizations in the country. The New England Flower Society also owns and operates Garden in the Woods, which is the largest landscaped collection of wildflowers in the northeast, and you can visit it with your car rental in New England.
