- Entry price is $4 for Missouri residents, as opposed to $25 at the Chicago Botanical Garden. They do not check ID, meaning it is $4 for those who can say, "Why yes, I am from Mizzurrah."
- Several amazing climatrons
- The Japanese garden has acoustically-conscious waterfalls and a mating pair of foxes that live on the grounds.
- As mentioned before, the garden grounds are highly structured and seem to be lost in time, lending emphasis to the historic buildings, pools, mazes, etc. The "Linnaeus House" features spectacular blooms and tropicals.
