Jack and Carol Reed, 3216 W. 300 South
A lot has changes since this garden was on the 2005 Stroll. There is a new water feature and new flower beds created after the loss of some large trees. An informal mix of shade and sun gardens, look for the hardy begonia, Canadian ginger, fern-leafed peony and bottlebrush buckeye among more than 250 hostas and a wade assortment of native plants.
Bonus garden: Mary Reed and family, 5460 W. 80 South — open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 7 only
Daylilies — 600 varieties in fact — aren’t the only stars in this display. Dozens of perennial bloomers make this a feast for the flower-lovers’ eyes. Buttercups, columbine, hostas and astilbe; hollyhocks, bee balm, sedum and yarrow; Shasta daisies and sunflowers share the garden with roses, clematis and other vines, hibiscus and Rose-of-Sharon. Viburnum, dogwood and numerous trees, including a dawn redwood, provide vertical interest. This garden offers a place for sun and shade plants, natives and imports and is highlighted by fences and arbors, statues, stepping stones and birdhouses.
