June's PlantAsia celebrates the plants and gardening traditions of the vast Asian continent. If you enter from the west, you will view three large rocks. Creating a focal point with three objects is a traditional aestheic in Asian art.

Beyond the three rocks notice the change in pavement. River rocks are placed to suggest the tranquil flow of water. On the bridge, the direction of the river stones transforms to match the journey of the real stream below.

As you travel down the river stone path, take note of the individual beds with their different plant materials that represent the various climates of Asia. Included are the Asian steppe, Himalayan meadows, mountain forests, and the Sino-Himalayan woodland.

The structure in the northeast corner of the garden is called a ting, a Chinese pavilion. In Chinese architecture, the ting offers weary travelers a place to rest. Two moon gates frame views of the garden throughout the seasons.

June's PlantAsia is truly a garden for all seasons. In spring, a carpet of red tulips explodes from the steppe area. Summer finds many flowering shrubs and perennials. Autumn is accented by golden leaves and late blooming toad lilies (Tricyrtis spp.). The many varieties of trees and dried grasses provide texture and color through the winter months.
