A strange, but beautifully bizarre climbing hydrangea is beginning to bloom at the Center for Urban Horticulture.

June is a great time to celebrate our native Lewis’s Mock Orange which is currently in blooming at UWBG!

Joseph Rock’s Peony has been prized by gardeners and avid collectors for decades.
