The garden was established around 1911, replacing an earlier garden elsewhere. It was redesigned between 1948 and 1965, and its alpine rock garden was revised 1987–1990 on modern systemic principles. Its first greenhouse was constructed in 1909, with three additional greenhouses added 1977–1979, a succulent house in 1993, and a sixth greenhouse for container plants built in 1997.

Today the garden contains more than 5000 species organized within the following major sections:
