This specialty garden consists of curved island beds planted with a diverse selection of flowering shrubs, ornamental grasses, and low-maintenance perennials. The shrubs in this garden are selected for their flowers, fruit, fall color, and winter interest.
This garden is a combination of annuals, tender perennials, and shrubs. Interpretive booklets focus on the lore and cultural uses of 10 common flowers: the rose, carnation, daisy, sunflower, poppy, lily, iris, tulip, peony, and chrysanthemum.
This garden has 302 accessioned plants, including some zone 6 trees, and 123 different types of rhododendrons—almost all hybrids. These plants are protected by a white pine overstory, and interspersed with other plants suited for shady areas.
