Alpine Garden

The Alpine Garden was established in 2014 as an entryway to the Jacobson Conifer Collection. The growing conditions mimic those of high altitude regions across the world. The garden displays a variety of unique miniature conifers and herbaceous perennials that would be lost in the larger landscapes of the conifer and perennial gardens.  Troughs of various sizes border the walkway that leads up to the iconic Jones Memorial Gazebo. The garden was designed and installed by Pam Maurer, owner of Evergreen Gardens, Ames, and Ed Rinderspacher, owner of Rindy Tree and Turf Care, West Branch.
