The Wildflower Garden is located on the south side of the arboretum under a very old oak tree, providing the necessary shade for these plants. The plantings contain wildflowers indigenous to the Midwest, offering an opportunity to view our natural environment, somewhat as the original residents and settlers might have seen the hills and prairies in this area of Iowa and Illinois.
Visitors see more than 30 varieties of woodland flowers such as Solomon's Seal, Trillium, ferns, wild Geraniums, Ginger, Jack-in- the-Pulpits, and violets of all colors. Blooms begin in March and continue through October with some stalwart varieties.
The height of the blooming season is early to mid-Spring, although the great variety of leaf and plant structures continues through the summer. Nearby are Prairie Grasses with the colors, shapes and textures one might have seen beyond the woodland settings of the wildflowers. In the distance are varieties of native and other trees, a brook, and the hills of the arboretum.
Sweet Woodruff and Wild Ginger
