We are a group of Rock Garden enthusiasts with nearly 200 members, mostly in Michigan. We focus on plants of the Alpine regions of the world but never turn down a chance to grow any unique or interesting plant. Why not join us?

From garden tours to plant sales, our members enjoy sharing their knowledge and passion in this type of horticulture. We have speakers and programs that span the globe, with experts from as far as Europe, South Africa and New Zealand to our very own members, all united in the pursuit of rock gardening.
