Originally planted in 1990, the Idaho Native Plant Garden was overhauled in 2010 to improve and enhance wheelchair accessibility to the Lewis and Clark Native Plant Garden and other upper portions of IBG.New signage and a naturalistic cedar and steel sculpture (titled “Cedar”; sculpted by Francis Fox) were incorporated in 2011.
A memorial bench fits comfortably into this “natural” environment, which now supports several 15-20 foot tall trees, all from the 1990 planting.
The reshaping of this Garden allowed us to increase its diversity, so much so that the small area currently houses 42 Idaho native plant species.
See the list HERE.
Better yet, check it out next time you are en route to either the Don Dick or Lewis and Clark Gardens.
