Annual Garden. Each year, the Arboretum plants 25,000-30,000 annuals in the garden.
The Daylily and Chrysanthemum Walk
The Arboretum began to renovate and re-plant daylily gardens in 2011, under the direction of Paul Sotak, with Kyle Billadeau spearheading the project for the Daylily Society of Minnesota (DSM). DSM members donated daylilies to enhance the collection. Visitors can now see newer introductions by Region 1 breeders Karol Emmerich, gary Schaben —winners of recent AHS awards— as well as Jim Derifield, Mike Grossmann, Gerald Hobbs, David Hansen, Kathy Lamb, Don Lovell, Stan Murdock, Nan Ripley, and Bob Wilson. The daylily collection is part of the Daylily and Chrysanthemum Walk, a short distance from the Oswald Visitor Center.
The optional tour to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum includes transportation to and from the Arboretum, the gate fee, a narrated tram ride, and a box lunch, with plenty of time to wander the beautiful display gardens and see the recently expanded and updated daylily beds. We will have up to three buses for a maximum of 126 attendees (depending on interest).
