Jane Watson Irwin Perennial Garden

Year Round

The Perennial Garden combines a vast palette of colors and textures into a lush, living work of art.

Designed with an artist's eye (that of Lynden B. Miller, famed public garden designer and former painter), the Perennial Garden combines a vast palette of colors and textures, flowers and foliage into a lush, living work of art. Follow the path through all four themed "rooms," or pick a favorite and settle onto a bench to admire the scene. Discover the first spring bulbs amid colorful pansies and early-flowering perennials, then return in summer when the garden soars to its peak with countless brilliant flowers in waves of purple, pink, yellow, and red. Venture back for the beauty of fall's asters, mums, oakleaf hydrangeas, and ornamental grasses. Whenever you visit, bring your camera--the flashes of inspiration for your own garden will be many.
