Throughout the Arboretum you will discover small “pocket gardens” around of the parking bays, trailheads, and benches. These gardens include hardy, low maintenance, and stalwart perennials that work well with flowering shrubs and ornamental grasses. Collectively, these are a component of our Urban Tree Collection and were created to add another dimension to the Arboretum’s landscape.

To explore a variety of planting styles from informal naturalistic assemblages of native plants that attract birds and pollinators, to more orderly plantings where larger drifts of plants are utilized in the planting scheme, be sure to visit all our pocket gardens.
