International Beauty and Sustainability in Centennial Garden
International beauty is well within reach for gardeners in the Denver area. Centennial Garden is a true example of the enduring beauty that native and international plants can bring to local gardens.
Centennial Garden is the fulfilled vision of Wellington and Wilma Webb. With the help of a team from the Denver Botanic Gardens, the pair created a unique garden that would serve as an entryway to the city.
A decade later, with minimal maintenance, the garden still thrives. The buffalo grass (Buchloe dactyloides) is thick and well-trimmed, lined with native shrubs that require trimming only once a year. The perennials are in bloom; purple and yellow crocuses provide bursts of color throughout the lawn. In autumn, the garden will still enjoy the colors of a different variety of crocuses. Crocuses are native to sub-Alpine and Asian regions but they manage beautifully in Colorado. The design is well-planned to provide splendor for all seasons and for years to come. Centennial Garden is a little known garden with a big future!
