The Rose Garden

This garden houses a collection of over 200 roses, including old garden, shrub, hybrid teas, floribundas, grandifloras, rugosas climbers and miniatures.  This breathtaking centerpiece was originally established with plant donations from private individuals and English Gardens, and designed by Linda Schorr.  It now boasts a bed of Canadian Morden and Explorer roses donated by Great Lakes Roses.  New additions to the area include a beautiful brick patio and borders around the beds and additional plantings of Michigan hardy varieties.  With so much to offer it is no wonder it is a much sought-after volunteer experience.
