We were blown away with the beauty and variety of the lilies and other flowers! They have roses, peonies, etc., that bloom at different times, too. I might drive 2.5 hours from home just to see this garden again!

I work on this beautiful campus and one of my favorite walks always includes the gardens. No matter what season there are amazing plants there. It is peaceful, with two beautiful fountains and amazing pathways.
