The horticulture volunteers from the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park have been very busy pruning, weeding and fertilizing the Waterfront Crescent and the Rose Garden in preparation for the blooming season.  The rewards were a magnificent display of wisteria blooms during May as well as the beginning of blooming in the Crescent (Creeping Blue Geraniums and early Daylilies).

The Rose Garden is in the midst of the first bloom of the season! The center bed of Hybrid Teas and Floribundas generally exhibit the largest blooms of the season at this time; be sure to visit!

Several volunteers explained the artistic value of pruning the wisteria trunks. The gnarled trunks are considered, along with the foliage and blossoms, to be an admired feature of this plant.  They
will continue this throughout June so stop by and admire their artistry!
