RPG IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED IN SUPPORT OF EFFORTS TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19
Dedicated in 2012, the Garden is located at the northern end of RPG and features many of the award winning plants hybridized by Tony and Dorothy Willott. (D. Willott photo by Sandra Pinell)
Sandra and Robert (Bob) Pindell, Ron Hartmiller, Friends of Greenhouse, and others devote time and efforts to keep the garden healthy and beautiful. Bob's excellent history, "The Willott Iris Garden: From Rescue Toward Renown," was featured in "Roots: Journal of the Historical Iris Preservation Society," Vol. 30. Issue 2, Fall 2017.
