More About the Woodland Garden 

  • The Woodland Garden first began as a native woodland garden, but over the years non-native plants were introduced to the area. 
  • The best time to visit the Woodland Garden is in mid April when the Celandine poppies are blooming.

What Happened to Redbud 7-1-7?

Within the Woodland Garden, visitors will find the remains of Redbud 7-1-7. This tree fell over 10+ years ago and currently looks like a dead hollow log. However, it continues to leaf out and bloom every year.
