Demonstration Garden - Perennial Mound
Area Lead: Nancy Nunnelly and Bev Cooper
Description: The Perennial Mound was planted in 2004. Since then it has been plagued by gophers and by dry winters with no means of irrigation. The plants that have survived have proven to be extremely hardy. It is an example of transition zone plants which require moderate amounts of water.
