Above the treeless
elevations of northern Sweden, with their heaths, marshes and boulders,
Alpine flora, including dwarf birch, willow,
and terrestrial orchids, can be
found. Our pseudo-alpine meadow
features Alpine Squill (Scilla bifolia),
Snake Head Lilly (Fritillaria meleagris), Lungwort (Pulminaria
longifolia), European Columbine (Aquilegia vulgaris), Glory of the Snow
(Chionodoxa forbesii) and Dwarf River Birch (Betula nigra ‘Little
King’.) If your head is spinning from the inclusion of so many botanical plant
names, you have none other to blame than the father of binomial nomenclature
(scientific plant names), the eminent
botanist, Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778); himself a Swede.
We have also greatly expanded
our collection of Dogwoods, Redbuds, and Azaleas, many occurring in less formal
plantings and blended together for waves of color along the Azalea trail. All of these provide exciting new options for plants that may have
been overlooked by the homeowner, PLUS an excuse to visit the Garden more
