Ozarks Botanical Garden Creates Educational Displays for the Backyard


The Botanical Garden Society of the Ozarks announced plans to create nine diverse gardens, each measuring 2,000 square feet, to demonstrate creative possibilities that can be adapted to the average backyard landscape. The concept arose from questions received from newcomers to the area about which plants grow best in the local climate.

The nine themes chosen for the gardens are Children's, Four Seasons, Japanese, Ozark Natives, Rock/Water, Rose and Perennial, Sensory, Shade and Vegetable/Herb. The designs will offer an educational experience, providing history and cultural background on many of the plants.

Planners of the Rose and Perennial garden hope to show that many roses are not difficult to grow, it will feature 180 roses grown without the use of chemical pesticides.
