Zucker Shrub Collection

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 collection are selected for their flowers, fruit, fall color, and winter interest. The shrubs peak in flower, color and texture in spring, with later-flowering shrubs providing color throughout the growing season. The garden also features a display of daylilies, which peak in July and August; and ornamental grasses, which provide interest into late fall.
