The Archives of American Gardens, housed in the Smithsonian's Horticulture Services Division, includes a collection of approximately 60,000 photographic images and records that document historic and contemporary gardens throughout the United States. The images, which show views from colonial times to the present, include a considerable range of garden features such as furniture and ornamentation, as well as all manner of design styles.

The nucleus of the Archives is the Garden Club of America Collection. Other collections include photographs, plans, and office files documenting the work of landscape architects Thomas Warren Sears, Perry Wheeler, and Robert M. Fletcher; publisher and horticulturist Dr. J. Horace McFarland; the Lewis and Valentine Nursery of Long Island, NY; and the Horticulture Services Division's own artifacts and activities.

The following is a list of major collections from AAG cataloged in Smithsonian Institution Research Information System (SIRIS):
