The gardens:

Ellen Livingston, 1520 S. Armstrong St.

Loni Tressel, 406 Ruddell Drive

Loni has created an English cottage garden with a sprinkling of herbs. Enjoy the brick paths that wind among the many varieties of lilies and hostas under dogwood, magnolia and mimosa. Iris, coneflowers and lavender happily grow with strawberries, rhubarb, chives and horseradish.

Jay and Karen King, 1718 W. Walnut St.

This formal garden flows around the entire perimeter of the hose and property and features a mixture of roses, hydrangeas, arborvitae, grasses and boxwoods. There are multiple seating areas from which the gardens may be enjoyed, shaded by redbud, dogwood, magnolia and river birch.

Eulaine Delgado and Gerald Smith, 1732 W. Walnut St.

Designed and installed by Eulaine, this cottage garden is filled with a wide variety of perennials, from bleeding hears to Black-eyed Susans. Glass garden sculptures, created by Eulaine, along with gazing balls, bird houses and vintage bird cages, add eye-catching interest among the flowers.

Patricia Myers, 6207 Woodcliff Court

Relaxed and peaceful are words that come to mind when describing this semi-formal garden that has been created over 14 years. Miniature hostas, sea lavender and Hinoki cypress are features among a wide variety of shrubs, vines and grasses. Patricia has used brick, rock, fence and arbors to unify her design and added fountains and a water lily pond for more interest.

Kent and Jeanette Land, 3985 W. 200 South, Russiaville

Surrounded by woods, Jeanette’s cottage garden contains dozens of varieties of perennial flowering plants, grasses, and vines accented by numerous shrubs that include eight varieties of hydrangea.
