When it blooms: late summer through late fall
About: HPU alumnus Buddy Deal and his wife, Doris, supported this garden near the Webb Conference Center. It unveils more than 200 different varieties of plants, including an array of hydrangeas that bloom pink, blue, and white. That includes an oakleaf hydrangea called ‘Little Honey’ (Hydrangea quercifolia ‘Little Honey’). This variety of hydrangeas was included because Doris’ late husband, Buddy, used to call her his “Little Honey.” That detail made the garden even more meaningful to Doris. The garden was relocated in 2016 with an expansion of the plantings. The different taxa of plants fill this garden providing an everchanging tapestry of floral and foliage.
