Rose Garden: The Rose Garden is enjoying its first flush of color for the season! Make sure you don’t miss this garden at its peak.


Perennial Garden: This garden is full of color and texture this week as the perennials fully stretch out for the season. Salvias and nepetas are painting the garden blue this week. There is always something beautiful blooming in this garden, with more on deck when they finish.


Native Plant GardenSarracenia species are in full bloom in the wetland! Native rhododendrons and azaleas are coming into flower and this is also good time to see perennials like Zizia aurea

Rock Garden

This garden is awash in color, and the display can change daily and even hourly on a sunny day.


Tree of the Week:  Stewartia pseudocamellia,  Japanese stewartia

Look for the Garden’s stewartia collection nestled within the Ross Conifer Arboretum along a small path which begins across from the Perennial Garden and ends at Garden Way. A grove of Stewartia pseudocamellia is blooming with milky white flowers resembling camellia blossoms. In bud, these flowers look like large shiny pearls sitting on the branches. Japanese stewartia is a small statured, slow growing tree that is beautiful year-round with stunning multi-colored bark in silver, copper, green, and pink hues.


Perennial of the Week: Phlox carolina ‘Miss Lingard’,  thicklead phlox

Large clusters of pure white flowers top glossy green foliage on this 3’ tall North Eastern native. It shows terrific disease resistance and rarely needs to be staked. Find it drifting through the meadow in the Azalea Garden and gracing the Native Border in the Native Plant Garden.
