Description

This perennial garden showcases color, texture and pattern.. It features wildflowers and peony (Paeonia) in the spring, summer lilies and Beauty Berry (Callicarpa) shrubs in the fall.

Marie Aull was a hands-on person. This garden, like all those in the park, is a product of the hours spent digging, weeding, watering and pruning its individual plants, collected over the years. Marie once said, "I see plants individually, and I associate each kind with someone I have known. That hosta over there comes from a clump my mother gave me as a child. I pulled it apart, and I'm still growing it. That hosta, to me, is my mother."
