More history: One of the Arboretum’s original gardens, the Chapel Meditation Garden is a place of inspiration and reflection. Visitors can pause under the beautiful arbor overlooking a serene fountain.  In recent years the gardens have been enhanced with the addition of bulbs, many new flowering shrubs and perennials which primarily flower white.  In winter of 2013-14 a renovation of the eastern side of the chapel added many white-flowering plants which also tend to have fragrance. Devoted affiliates of the Hayworth Chapel provided the support to make this garden a reality.
