Content Detail

Travel 100 years back in time and delight in the garden style of the 1920s in this online lecture with The Morton Arboretum. Home gardens in the 1920s celebrated and welcomed nature. Birdhouses, bird baths, fish ponds, and rock gardens were all the rage. Cottage garden perennials, such as Canterbury bells, irises, foxglove, phlox, pyrethrum, coreopsis, hollyhocks, roses, columbine, and poppies were just some of the flowers that adorned the front and back gardens. 

As The Morton Arboretum celebrates its beginnings in 1922, join horticulturist and author Nina Koziol for an exploration of the plants and garden design ideals from this period in American gardens.
