Inspiration for Your Home Garden
Though you are sure to find gardening inspiration throughout our botanical garden and arboretum, be sure to see:
The Zucker Shrub Collection
Located in the F.R. Newman Arboretum, this display garden was designed as a “sampler” of flowering shrubs, ornamental grasses, and low-maintenance perennials within a series of outdoor “rooms” to walk through for inspiration.
Groundcovers can provide an attractive and sustainable alternative to high-maintenance lawns. This collection includes a wide range of plants that make ideal groundcovers for either shady, sunny, or sloped areas.
Brightly-colored flowers clusters make rhododendrons very popular landscape plants which have long been hybridized for improved blooms, foliage, and hardiness. Over 100 different types of rhododendrons aredisplayed on Comstock Knoll.
If you are accustomed to long winters, visit this garden to find ways to incorporate interesting colors and textures into your winter landscape. Here are over 700 plants, chosen for their interesting bark texture, bark color, unusual growth habits, winter fruit, cones, or evergreen foliage.
