We know of a few more ozone gardens, other than ours here in St. Louis, MO

It would be great to know how many ozone gardens are out there.
In North Carolina, at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park's Appalachian Highlands Science Learning Center, there is a teaching and research ozone garden with plants native to the Smoky Mountains. This is the longest running ozone garden we know of.
At the Appalachian Highlands Science Learning Center; what a beautiful setting for an ozone garden!
A new ozone garden was planted in 2013 at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. Goddard has had ozone gardens in the past. This garden is using the same common milkweed, cutleaf coneflower, and snap bean species we are using in St. Louis.

A new ozone garden was also planted this year at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. It is located in the Harvard Community Garden and includes the same plant species as the gardens in St. Louis and at Goddard.

The Air Quality Learning and Demonstration Center at the Arboretum at Penn State University contains gardens of native plant and forest tree species known to be sensitive to various air pollutants, including ozone. The Center includes facilities with open-top chambers where plants are grown in varying levels of ozone for research purposes.
