Sunday, June 16; 2:00 p.m.
Join gardener Phil Syphrit on this tour of Comstock Knoll and learn about the history and plant collections of the Botanical Garden’s most prominent landscape feature. The Knoll’s unique topography was created by glacial activity and flowing water. Today, the Knoll is ablaze in spring with vibrant white, yellow, pink, and red blossoms of the Bowers Rhododendron Collection. The rhododendrons and azaleas are interspersed with small flowering trees, ferns, and perennials—including an extensive hosta collection—all shaded by century-old white pine trees. Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Some slope and stair climbing is required.
Instructor: Phil Syphrit, gardener
