O'Fallon Perennial Walk

Inspired by the design of European perennial border gardens, a flourish of color gradients and foliage is found along a backdrop of a formally pruned native juniper (Juniperus scopulorum) hedge. This hedge creates an optical illusion; the rows are angled so that the views from the north end make the south end appear farther away than it actually is.

The O'Fallon Perennial Walk features diverse plantings, including evergreen shrubs such as boxwood and blue spruce (Picea pungens 'Montgomery'), flowering shrubs such as lilacs, roses and shrub althea (Hibiscus syriacus 'Minerva'), herbaceous perennials in a wide aray of colors such as lilies, daylilies, bellflower and chrysanthemum, and not to be forgotten, spring blooming bulbs including many varieties of tulips, flowering onion (Allium cultivars) and the exotic foxtail lily (Eremurus himalaicus). Pansies complete the palate in the fall and provide a carpet of rich colors in the fall through late spring.

This garden was designed by Rob Proctor and Lauren Springer Ogden in the early 1990s.
