The Linnaeus Garden volunteers are busy preparing for the fourth anniversary event. (L to R): Lee Griffith, Julie Almohandis and Janet Cherry.
On Saturday, June 5 from 9 a.m. to after 4 p.m., Tulsa Garden Center’s Linnaeus Teaching Garden, in Woodward Park, will celebrate its fourth anniversary. This unique garden has never been more beautiful, with thousands of lush plants, gorgeous hardscaping, fountains, water features, ornate trellises and pergolas.
The day will be filled with an array of activities. Starting at 9 a.m., the first 500 visitors to the garden will receive a gorgeous one gallon Red Maidiland Rose, a $15 value. This disease-resistant French shrub rose never needs spraying, and blooms massively all summer and fall.
At 10:30 am in the Tulsa Garden Center’s auditorium, Dean Bemis, color expert with Goldsmith Seed in California, will offer a free lecture on “Designing Color in the Garden.” Dean travels throughout the world designing colorful gardens. Disneyworld, U.S. Open Golf tournaments and many other high-value properties have been made colorful and beautiful by this talented landscape architect. Attendees of this lecture also will receive new and fabulous annuals.
Linnaeus Garden volunteers also will be selling varieties of hot new annuals, some of which will be made available for the first time in Oklahoma. Plus, Pavestone Corporation, the nation’s largest hardscape manufacturer, will donate a 200-square-foot stone patio to be given away during a raffle. Light refreshments and lots of free gardening advice and literature will be available through the day.
The gorgeous Linnaeus Teaching Garden in Woodward Park has thousands of lush plants for visitors to enjoy.
