Hidden Lake Gardens began as a simple testament to the education and enjoyment of the public.  The Gardens are a natural paradise, a place to escape from everyday life and connect with the world of nature.  The bonsai courtyard displays miniature trees as works of art.  Dwarf and rare conifers in the Harper Collection show off their varied forms, colors, sizes, and textures.  Hosta Hillside exhibits hundreds of hostas and other shade loving plants, while providing beautiful views of Hidden Lake.  Exotic plants boldly thrive in the arid, tropical, and temperate conservatory settings.  Annuals and perennials offer bright blooms in the sun and soothing foliage in shade.  Trees and shrubs across acres and acres of rolling terrain demonstrate their natural and ornamental attributes.  From the comfort of a car or on meandering footpaths, visitors have at their disposal a visual treat, ranging from the modest to the magnificent. Every season offers new highlights, views, and adventures. Come and experience this beautiful botanical garden and arboretum in the scenic Irish Hills of southeast Michigan.
