Comstock Knoll

Ithaca, New York 14850, United States

Created By: Cornell Botanic Gardens


Commstock Knoll is the perfect home for plants that thrive in dappled shade, including azaleas, small flowering trees, hostas, ferns, and the stunning Bowers’ Rhododendron Collection. Originally purchased in 1910 from Cornell professors Anna and John Comstock, the Knoll was intended to serve as an outdoor classroom, and has continued to serve as a space of learning, inspiration, and relaxation for students and other visitors.
