Created as a cottage-style garden in memory of Barbara Ann Jardine (1923-1991), a long time volunteer at the HCP.
A mixture of old-fashioned flowering shrubs and perennials, spring bulbs, self-seeding annuals, and biennials create an informal, colourful, three-season garden. Plants include Primula, Narcissus, Tulipa and Myosotis in the spring; Clematis Montana ‘Pink Perfection’ climbing up into the Douglas Firs for a spectacular early summer display; Hydrangea, Gaura, Geranium, Helenium in the summer; and Anemone japonica and Sedum spectabile for fall interest.
This is a genuine memorial garden in that it utilizes plants that Ann Jardine loved, and also carries on a gardening style that she practised. It also Serves as a model for homeowners with moderate gardening skills and aspirations
