Garden Five

Garden Five flanks the main entry on the left. This garden features Washington Hawthorns along the circle and an ensemble of shrubs that is very true to the original 1950’s plant palette. Persian lilac and snowball viburnum are older varieties. Calamintha is featured along the seat wall, which is a magnet for bees and butterflies over the summer and fall. Roses and bayberries are also included in the ensembles along the terrace wall. The display beds feature annuals with two to three rotations throughout the season.

Approach Five — Main Entry

Approach Five is the main entry to the Gardens and Temple from Linden Avenue and connects to the entrance of the upper sanctuary. This approach features a peaceful pool and is highlighted by annuals displays along the double walk that are changed out twice a year.
