Mariana H. Qubein Arboretum & Botanical Gardens

The Phyllis and James Morgan Knot Garden

Donor: Donated by Jim and Phyllis Morgan of High Point, both Class of 1961. 

Location: At the front entrance to Hayworth Fine Arts Building

Featured plants: Typically pansies and tulips in late fall through spring, and begonias in summer

When it blooms: Peak bloom in late fall, spring and throughout summer

More history: Borrowing on the Elizabethan style of pattern gardens and appropriately situated in front of the Hayworth Fine Arts Building is our own Knot garden, featuring a design mimicking the small window located over the door of the Wrenn Building. Outlining the garden spaces is a sheared hedge of yaupon holly (Ilex vomitoria ‘Schillings’), while the interiors are filled with seasonal color creating a beautiful tapestry.
