Scroll Through Summer: June

The summer sun brings about the peak of several showy plant collections at the Missouri Botanical Garden — including lilies and daylilies— while hostas and hydrangeas flourish in the cooling shade. June also marks the peak of the spectacular iris collection along the zigzag bridge in the Japanese Garden. Take a virtual stroll through the Garden with 30 of our favorite photos from June.
