In the Entry Garden:
Echinacea purpurea ‘Vintage Wine’ (Purple Coneflower); this distinctive cultivar of Echinacea is characterized by its upright habit, seen here still holding seed heads upright brushed with snow

In the Nature Garden:
Viburnum dilatatum ‘Cardinal Candy’ (Linden Viburnum); northern gardeners can enjoy the impressive red fruit of this especially hardy dilatatum variety

In the Show Garden:

Chamaecyparis nootkatensis ‘Variegata’ (Nootka False Cypress); random cream-yellow variegation covers about a third of the blue-green foliage

In the Garden Hall Courtyard:

Pinus parviflora (Glauca Group) (Japanese White Pine); each blue needle of this representative of the Japanese White Pine has a white stripe; an outstanding garden tree

In the Garden Hall Courtyard:

Pinus strobus ‘Horsford’ (White Pine); a very compact form of Eastern White Pine, a miniature bun shape with thin light green needles
