a great time to visit White River Gardens! Our annual orders have
arrived and planting has begun. Both the Clowes Water Garden and
Belvedere planters are complete. We are excited to watch them fill in
as summer approaches!
of the annuals our visitors have noticed and asked about is planted in the
raised bed of the Polly H. Hix Design Gardens (and soon to be at the Hilbert
Conservatory re-entry walk). Ganzania ‘Kiss Orange Flame’ is hard to
miss with its bright orange daisy like flowers. The flowers of
Ganzania keep tightly closed in cloudy weather, but with sunny days, this
flower is stunning and will make a statement in any sunny garden border.
we wait for our annuals to fill in and make their ultimate impression, there
are plenty of other plants throughout White River Gardens to keep any plant
week, the Virginia Fairbanks Sun Garden is most prolific in Blue False
Indigo (Baptisia australis), Spiderwort (Tradescantia),
and varieties of ornamental onions (Allium). Other plants of
interest in the Sun Garden are the Yellow Flag Iris (Iris pseudacorus)
along the stream and Blue Star (Amsonia tabernaemontana). You
will see a nice stand of Blue Star at the Stream Pool planting.
Come and enjoy the late spring blooming at White River Gardens!
