More history: Several selections from Epperson’s garden help fill the space. Some of his treasured hostas and irises have become the foundation for several other gardens on campus including the new Woodland Hillside Garden as well as the Perennial Garden which houses the majority of his iris collection. As this garden is located in such a well traveled area we have made efforts to fill the garden with an assortment of plants which bring fragrance to the garden throughout the year.
