The garden at the Irma Stern Museum is an oasis on the UCT campus. Students, staff and visitors are welcome to stroll, host meetings, bring their own picnic, linger with a book or socialise.
The garden is also used as a venue for events.
Irma Stern herself was famously in love with plants and exuberant flowers, and the garden continues to be kept in much the same style as she would have had it.
The space is a treat for plant lovers and there are a number of noteworthy trees throughout the garden: the beautiful and handsome Magnolia grandiflora in the north end of the garden, down in the south end the Norfolk Island Pine surrounded by Phoenix Reclinata, in the courtyard the handsome American ash, and Camelias and Pomegranates outside the studio.
