Longwood Gardens has been named the Best Botanical Garden in the United States by USA Today and 10Best.

Longwood topped a list of 20 botanical gardens from across the United States. New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, NY; Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, Missouri; Lewes Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Virginia; and Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan rounded out the top five.

A panel of experts including Cindy Brockway (The Trustees), Abby Hird (Botanic Gardens Conservation International) and Katy Moss Warner (American Horticultural Society), picked the initial 20 nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote.

In 2014, Longwood was named Best Public Garden in North America.
