Ornamental Grass Collection Open House: Celebrating 35 Years

August 23 and September 22, 3 PM - 6 PM

Join Mary Meyer, PhD, in the Ornamental Grass Collection to enjoy the grasses in their fall beauty and see which plants have been there for 35 years. The collection, which Meyer helped establish at the Arboretum in 1987, is a Plant Collections Network Nationally Accredited Plant Collection.

Bring any grass questions or any grasses you want identified. Free posters and information on little bluestem, the Perennial Plant Association's perennial of the year for 2022 will be available.

Meet at the Ornamental Grass Collection; parking is available off Three-Mile Drive at the parking lot near the Dahlia Trial Garden/Pine Collection or the Ornamental Grass Collection parking lot just beyond the Maze Garden.
