Today, Shannon Smith, Senior Horticulturist, met with staff and volunteers during a “15 Minutes in the Garden” session where we learned about a new section of plants for this very special garden — the George Bragdon Daffodil Garden.  The Bragdon memorial garden will show a spectacular collection. We’ll have a huge variety of daffodils.  But the other neat thing about this garden is that it’s designed with all-season interest — with 32 specimens of perennials and shrubs, featuring great colored foliage, berries and blooms all year long.  The color palate will be yellows, salmons, white, and oranges, and feature universally accessible raised beds and wheelchair-friendly walkways and seat walls for seating access up close to the blooms.

We can’t wait for you to come see it later this spring!

 

Stay tuned later this spring for a follow up post with some of the featured plant selection and photos of the George Bragdon Daffodil Garden in full bloom.

Offering a nice place to sit & enjoy the blooms was a priority.
