Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg

4.8
#2 of 6 in Things to do in Blacksburg
The garden features hundreds of species of woody and herbaceous plants from around the world showcased in various features: a multi-acre shade garden, “hot” perennial border, spectrum mixed border, xeriphytic garden, two water features including the Jane Andrews Memorial Stream Garden, Pavilion tent lawn and folly, the Meadow Garden (new in 2008), and the Peggy Lee Hahn Garden Pavilion (special events facility and staff offices, open weekdays 8am - 5pm). The current garden, including new construction, covers six acres. Founded in 1984 by Horticulture faculty Robert Lyons and Robert McDuffie as the Horticulture Gardens, it was renamed the Hahn Horticulture Garden in November 2004 in honor of Peggy L. Hahn, for the generous gift and bequest for expansion from T. Marshall and Peggy Hahn. Many garden components and structures have been designed and built by Hort faculty and students. Many people over the years have contributed to the garden: students, faculty, staff, community volunteers, nursery and greenhouse growers, landscapers, and so many more.

  • This is a wonderful setting for memorable events. Before our last visit, we held my son's wedding and wedding reception at the Gardens. Beautiful setting, supportive staff, just a great time.  more »
  • Lovely garden to visit in spring, summer and fall. Nicely scaled for walker and browser and finding ideas for the home garden.  more »
  • This is a very peaceful place to visit while in the area of Blacksburg, VA. Access is free, free parking is nearby, but a VT visitor parking is needed. There are a few chairs on the decks of the visit...  more »

  • There are places that can entrance and transport you no matter where they are. This would be one of them. The Virginia Tech campus is extraordinary but Hahn Garden is just magical, just transfixing.
  • Very pretty garden on the campus of Virginia Tech. Even when the flowers are not in bloom, this is still a lovely spot to relax and take a few pictures, especially around the pond/waterfall in the center.
  • Serene and beautiful. Everyone wishes they had a community garden like this.
  • Very nice place with rare flowers. Could be a bit bigger!
  • One of my most favorite places to be. So peaceful and beautiful.
