The Perennial Garden

A- A A+

The Perennial Garden offers more than 1,200 varieties of plants that return year after year. This 3.5 acre landscape is designed as a series of “rooms” separated by trees and shrubs rather than walls. Perennials, which die back to the ground each winter but return from the roots in spring, show best with the structural elements of trees and shrubs around them.
Perennials may live year to year but their bloom time is usually shorter than garden annuals—about two weeks on average. This garden is designed to bloom in sequence from spring to fall, always providing colorful flowers in each garden bed.
