Event Lawn Garden

About this Planting
This is one of the most challenging spots to design, because of the varying sun/shade patterns and difference in soil moisture across the bed's length. This is the first time a display has been planted using Daffodils and our horticulturists are excited to show you the creative potential when stepping outside the Tulip box.

Millstone Garden

About this Planting
The Millstone Garden is an amazing collection of perennials, trees, and shrubs, but lacked in the spring bulb category. So this season you'll discover a few fun additions amongst the gardens. The Spanish Bluebells are a reintroduction to the gardens from years past and the Fritillary were a horticulture staff favorite from a visit to the Missouri Botanic Garden. We're excited to see how they do!
