Located in the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York in the hills of western Onondaga County, Limeledge is building a world-class woody plant collection nestled within a range of scenic landscapes. Our collections are designed to bring attention to native species and serve as an ecopark celebrating the region’s flora while introducing visitors to plant diversity from around the world.

Woodlands, farm fields, creeks, limestone barrens, and overlooks are all connected by our extensive trail system for running, hiking, and exploration.

We are different.

At Limeledge, view our New York State native plant collections, or observe plants from around the world so rare they are still undescribed to science. Compare poison-ivy to poison-oak, or poison-sumac to its harmless namesakes. Trouble telling oaks apart? Come view our large and growing collection of young plants. We are assembling collections of difficult groups such as hawthorns, willows, maples, birches, pines, and spruces.
