Alpine Garden Update

leave a comment »

I’ve been crazy about our new Alpine Garden all summer.  If you remember, this space (south of the Education Center) got a much needed makeover earlier this season.  To read about the new plant material added in June, please click here: https://cedarvalleyarboretum.wordpress.com/2011/06/17/garden-update-alpine-garden/ .

        

The different succulents are SO COOL!  And even better, they look cool ALL season long – not just a few week bloom period like many other perennials.  And when other gardens are starting to look ratty at the end of the growing season, there is still much to see in the Alpine Garden.

For several weeks I’ve been meaning to show you the most recent addition to the Alpine Garden – a vertical garden made by one of the Arboretum’s many creative volunteers.  Hung on the north fence of the space, this vertical garden holds several different varieties of succulents.  What a fun and easy way for anyone to have their own Alpine Garden!

See you in the gardens.
