Look for colorful, creative, and sometimes whimsical container gardens and display beds as you explore in the areas near the Visitor Center and the Thornhill Education Center at The Morton Arboretum.
These popular seasonal displays may give you ideas for adding color and texture to your own home garden and landscape.
The gardens can incorporate many kinds of plants, including aquatics, annuals, perennials, ornamental grasses, tropical plants, and flowering bulbs. In keeping with the Arboretum’s focus on trees and woody plants, each container display is centered on a tree or shrub.
In fall and winter, many of the containers get seasonal displays.
You’ll find container and display gardens in the Children’s Garden, Arbor Court, the May T. Watts Reading Garden, the Four Seasons Garden, the Fragrance Garden, at the Administration Building entrance, and at the Thornhill Education Center.
