The Entryway Garden and arbor were established in 1999. Plants selected for this garden are sun-loving varieties. Nearest the arbor are beds containing six rose bushes. They are planted in a symmetrical pattern; that is, one side matches the other in color of blossom and plant placement. The remaining planting beds are designed semi-formally and contain roses, perennials and annual flowers as well as woody trees, bushes and vines.
Raised beds are a focal point in this garden of sun-loving plants. Raised beds are an especially convenient type of gardening for those who prefer not to kneel, stand or bend.
Seasonal blooms of interest in the Entryway Garden may include:
- SPRING: Daffodils, bearded iris, cranesbill, peony, and roses
- SUMMER: Variegated euonymus, ivy, Oentherea primrose, day lilly, sweet potato vine, wave petunias and Shasta daisy
- FALL: Asters, cranesbill, day lily, sweet potato vine, Oentherea primrose, Shasta daisy, roses and mums
- WINTER: Euonymus, cranesbill hardy geranium
Four Persian Parrotia trees provide a multi-seasonal display with an interesting bare branch structure in winter, spring and fall blossoms, along with colorful red and yellow leaves in the fall.
The plaques mounted on the arbor contain the names of the many generous individuals who have made the Demonstration Garden possible. You’ll enjoy a very fragrant Hall’s honeysuckle as it climbs throughout the arbor.
The bricks underfoot on the walkway are engraved with donor names. Brass plaques on the bricks denote a donation of $100-$499 to the garden.
