Garden Map with Plant List

When it blooms: Bloom continues from late spring into late fall

More history:  Originally planted with 122 different varieties, this is a dynamic garden with additions and changes made each year in order to grow and maintain the collection.  In fall of 2013, we began the process of significant reworking of the garden.  Much of the focus of this renovation focused on improving the soils in the garden and bringing more structure to the garden such that all seasons display interest, including winter.
