GARDEN CENTER • ARBORETUM • BOTANIC GARDENS
Hornbaker Gardens, Inc. is a family owned and operated nursery located five miles southeast of Princeton, Illinois. Our large collections of hostas, daylilies, trees and shrubs, grasses, aquatics, annuals, and other perennials draw plant enthusiasts from not only the Midwest, but from all across the country.
WE DELIVER AND PLANT
The children’s garden area was created in memory of our beloved Kathy Hornbaker. It consists of a large, sloped, grassy play area where kids can be kids.
Every year we host many garden clubs and tour groups. We are happy to greet your group upon arrival and provide a history and overview of Hornbaker Gardens.
The secluded beauty of the botanical gardens and arboretum at Hornbaker Gardens is the perfect choice for your special day. Say “I do” on the manicured meadow, overlooking the pond, surrounded by nature’s beauty. Then walk to “The Barn” and start the party!
‘Neptune’ is the 2023 Hosta of the Year
The American Hosta Growers Association has picked a unique hosta as the 2023 Hosta of the Year. ‘Neptune’ has arching, wedge-shaped leaves that hold their powdery blue color well into summer.
