Overview

Click on the above links for each color section of the Color Wheel Garden for a list of plants.

The Color Wheel Garden is a large circle garden (approximately 36 square yards) with sections planted to represent the colors in the artist’s color wheel or the seven bands of the rainbow:  Red-Orange-Yellow-Green-Blue-Indigo-Violet.  A tall bur oak tree stands in the middle of the circle, surrounded by four Viburnum dentatum “Blue Muffin”.  A new vision for the Color Wheel Garden was implemented in 2016 to include plants of greater variety of heights, species, and habits.  The 86 varieties of 814 annual plants created a spectacular effect, with taller annuals planted near the middle and trailing vines spilling over the perimeter.  This diversity will expand in 2017 to include some carefully selected perennials and colorful cabbages in the design.  Click on the following link for a video of the Color Wheel Garden in bloom: Color Wheel Garden Video
