Class of '53 Container Gardens
Each summer, dozens of colorful container plantings adorn the patio of the Lewis Education Center and the patio of the Nevin Welcome Center. The bold, sometimes flamboyant flowers and foliage evoke a sense of the tropics and mirror Ithaca’s warm summers. Container gardens can consist of a variety of colors, as well as interesting textures and growth habits. Plants often included in the container collection are canna, hibiscus, coleus, lantana, gazania, and fuchsia.
