Gardens and Orchards

A critical element in learning and appreciating horticulture is working with plants, both outside and in greenhouses. On the WSU Pullman campus there are two “living laboratories” designed to offer students, and the public, a first-hand look at horticulture in action.

Landscape Architecture Display Garden

Thousands of students have passed through the old horticulture greenhouses on Wilson Road since they were built in 1951. In 2007, these greenhouses were torn down. At the suggestion of former WSU President V. Lane Rawlins, and following the conceptual plans of former WSU landscape architecture professor Phil Waite, the site of the old greenhouses was reborn as the Landscape Architecture Display Garden.

WSU Pullman Horticulture Center

The orchard at the WSU Pullman Horticulture Center is for members of the local campus or others to do teaching, research, and/or extension work. Surplus fruit and vegetables are sold to the general public in support of Hort Center operations.
