"The Four Seasons Garden gives visitors a glimpse of what we mean when we say “it’s a garden for all seasons.” All year long you’ll find a symphony of colors shapes and textures. The Cottage Garden offers sweet scents that take you back to grandma’s house. This area is a showcase of heirloom plants popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.Located between the Cottage and Canal Gardens The Crape Myrtle Grove offers visitors a place to rest in the shade. The Canal Garden includes a water feature framed by a fountain at each end. As long as a football field this garden offers new colors every season. The Scroll Garden is a study in shapes and textures as well as a garden for pollinators in the frost free months. Designed in a spiral tall plants progressively give way to ever shorter plants and The Allee Garden features a kid’s favorite — the tunnel fountain.The Ribbon Garden is accented by a curving channel of water that ends with streams of water playing a game of leapfrog while The Serpentine Garden is designed in a long meandering shape. It includes circular pools each portion themed with a different color.The Conifer is found at the end of the manicured gardens
