The University of Wisconsin - Madison's Botanical Garden is maintained by the Department of Botany under the supervision of Dr. Mohammad Mehdi Fayyaz. The garden is an important resource for both teaching and research and serves as reference for the different families, genera and species represented. It also provides an area for leisure where examples of plants from around the world demonstrate the inclusion diversity and beauty of the plant kingdom.

The new, expanded garden features trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and annuals with more than 500 species representing 100 families and 40 taxonomic orders of plants from all over the world. All of the plants are planted according to their taxonomic classification, making it easier for people to identify plants according to their genetic relationships to one another.

The garden is located south of Birge Hall along University Avenue.
