Last Days of Spring

Submitted June 14, 2016 at 3:29 PM

With less than a week left of spring, you better rush to the Garden to beat the heat that summer will bring.

Common Foxglove    Digitalis purpurea

This beauty will speed up your heart quite literally, it contains digitoxin which is used in medicine as a heart stimulant.

Sacred Datura    Datura wrightii

Although this whole plant is poisonous, it sure is gorgeous!

Nasturtium    Tropaeolum majus 'Alaska Mix'

This whole plant is edible and thought to be quite tasty in a salad, not to mention the smile it will put on your face as you enter the Herb Garden.

Lydia Woadwaxen    Genista lydia

As you walk down the Floral Walk, you will not be able to miss the clouds of bright yellow this shrub creates.

The weather here is splendid and we are now open from 9am to 9pm, so get up here already!
