In the Ellipse garden, located between the Waring House and the Romantic Garden you’ll find many beautiful, dependable landscape roses from the former May Bonfils Stanton Memorial Rose Garden. Fragrant and long-blooming roses blend beautifully with peonies, hydrangeas, daylilies and many other perennials. The Chihuly sculpture, “Colorado,” will draw you to this magical garden where you’ll want to linger and admire the rose plants and their companions.
