About: James and Phyllis Morgan, both of whom graduated from High Point College in 1961, support HPU’s Elizabethan style knot garden. Knot gardens are known for their intricate design, and they were popular during the time of William Shakespeare. So, it’s appropriate that this garden is situated in front of theHayworth Fine Arts Center. The garden is pattered after the window above the Wrenn Hall’s door and offers an array of flowers throughout the year. Outlining the garden is a sheared hedge of yaupon holly, while the interiors are filled with seasonal color creating a beautiful tapestry.
