The Stavanger Botanic Garden was established in 1978 and includes 12.9 hectares of garden and parkland. The botanic garden is owned and operated by the Stavanger city council.
In the Geographic Garden you can see species from other parts of the world where the climate is similar to that of the Stavanger area. Among the highlights are the big-leaved species of Rhododendron (e.g. R. sinogrande) and kiwi (Actinidia deliciosa) from Asia, several species of Hebe from New Zealand, Embothrium, Eucryphia, and Nothofagus from South America.
The Herb Garden contains a variety of medicinal and poisonous plants, culinary herbs, plants used for dying and plants used for tea. You will also find a selection of traditional and modern vegetables.
The Perennial Garden contains herbaceous and mixed borders with species of interest to gardeners particularly in southwestern Norway.
