Perennial Garden

A vast palette of colors and textures, flowers and foliage makes the Perennial Garden a living work of art. Its creator, Lynden B. Miller, is a notable garden designer and former painter. Follow the path through all four themed rooms. Each contains a distinctive assemblage of plants selected for their color or seasonality. Be sure to return throughout the year to enjoy the ever-changing display. You will always discover something new to admire, and maybe even find inspiration for your own garden.
