‘Gardens, Glorious Gardens!’

Visit a rare selection of the Rockford area’s most spectacular “Private Gardens.” These specially selected gardens will exhibit some of the finest landscaping in existence, and are filled with annual and perennial beds bursting forth in vibrant colors, cool woodland dotted with conifers, ornamentals, grasses, and exotics plus radiant full-sun expanses complemented by natural areas. These garden-wonderlands will inspire and delight with water features, garden statuary, whimsical ornamentations and much more. Each garden has a story the owners are eager to share and are only open to the public during Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden’s Garden Glory Walk.

Garden Glory Walk is held at eight “Private” gardens, plus Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden, throughout the Rockford area, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 15, and Sunday, July 16. Admission is $14 in advance with kids 12 and younger admitted free. For more information, visit Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden online at www.klehm.org or call 965-8146.
