Shrub Collection

The Shrub Collection is located behind the Perennial Garden. The main purpose of this garden is to showcase plants that grow well in Central New Jersey. The beds are designed to give year-round interest by using flowering shrubs, trees, perennials, and ornamental grasses.

The Shrub Collection is part of a more extensive Arboretum, which includes the Fragrance & Sensory Garden, the Ornamental Grass Collection, the Perennial Garden, and the Rudolf W. van der Goot Rose Garden.
