Polly Hill Arboretum

CPC institution Code: POLL
Shortia galacifolia

The Polly Hill Arboretum, a 70-acre public garden, contains the results of Polly Hill’s fifty years of horticultural experimentation. Rare trees and shrubs from around the world are set among stone walls, meadows, and fields, including Polly’s famous North Tisbury azaleas, the national stewartia collection, camellias, clematis, crabapples, magnolias, and many more. The kousa dogwood allee, perennial border, monkey puzzle tree, and the Julian Hill magnolia are favorites with visitors. Polly grew most of her plants from seed and has introduced over 80 cultivars.
