Hibiscus in the Sunny Border

The gardens neighboring the park's lawn are made up of a variety of plant material. Seasonal highlights, year round greenery, and flowering annuals all play a part in the lush borders. These gardens are anchored by a variety of larger perennial shrubs that are visually interesting almost year-round, and serve as base for all of the other plant life. Examples of this include the Prunus Cistena and the Oakleaf Hydrangea. More recently another green shrub has reached its peak highlight season, proving it's more than just another anchor in the beds.

The park is home to two types of hibiscus - Hibiscus Diana and Blue Hibiscus. You'll find both on the northern side of the lawn in the park, providing full bodied greenery with a little pop of color at this time of year.
