UDBG-TOUR PAGE 1
The Gardens of Boxwood Manor
University of Delaware Botanical Gardens
HI! I'm Emily and I'll be your TOUR GUIDE for today...September 20, 2003 at the UDBG Plant SALE [I was so happy to be here that I pulled Mom along so some of the pictures were taken while moving!]
In this first picture, you can see the partial-shade garden here. To the left is the lattice fence with 2 viewing windows. This idea goes back to England and allows people to see the part of the garden from outside as they pass by.
The pink and green caladiums under the tree are not winter hardy and must be dug up before frost. Russian sage is the tall, silvery perennial and has blue flowers.
