The Coors Memorial Garden

The Coors Memorial Garden is in memory of Jeanne Parham Coors and Cristy Coors Beasley. Jeanne was President of the MBG Board of Directors and members of the Coors family have been  long-time supporters of the Garden.

This new woodland garden will connect the path outside of Prehistoric Plant Trail to the Hydrangea Garden and Blecken Pavilion; creating a logical connection between existing gardens. 

The Coors Garden will wind its way through our Magnolia Grove, providing a season-long, fragrant and shaded respite for garden visitors. This new woodland understory will be developed using appropriate plant material and create an inviting naturalist garden walk.

Some of the plants being used are pictured here.
