TIGER GARDEN PLANT ADDITIONS
FLOWER GARDEN IMPROVEMENTS
GREENHOUSE START-UP 2021
2020 brought a few changes to the Tiger Garden in the Asian Habitat area. In addition to the Boxwoods and Day Lillies that were planted in 2018, Hostas were transplanted in 2019 and Tiger Lillies added in 2020 to fill in the gaps on the north end of the garden. These plants are an understory to the Russian Rock Birch trees that have been established in this garden along with bulbs that adorn the memorial boulder in place. Wisteria will be added in 2021.
A few notable changes will be taking place in 2021. A small rock garden (Taylor's garden) has been established in the Asian Garden and volunteers will continue to upgrade the asian plants. If successful then expansion will be realized and more color may be introduced. Plans are also underway to install Asian shrubs in this area. Two new gardens in the Dell were started last year and new plants will be added for more texture and color.
Society volunteers are looking forward to a new season of flower raising.New plants will be nurtured and and planted in the pathway pots, weather permitting, March appears to be the month that activity heats up. This year, besides the arboretum gardens, plants will be nurtured for a flower pot expansion along the pathways and at the animal exhibits. Up to 20 pots will be distributed.
