The Arbor Garden

The Arbor Garden, built in 1986, is covered with Wisteria vines, which need rigorous pruning in winter or early spring before new growth starts. Nearby stands a dwarf Copper Beech, a gift from the Hollis Garden Club in 1985. The unmowed field beyond the Arbor provides a nursery for butterfly caterpillars: Queen Anne’s Lace for Black Swallowtails, Milkweed for Monarchs, clover for Little Blues, and assorted grasses for Satyrs and Skippers.

During the gardening season, chairs are placed under the arbor so visitors can sit and enjoy the beautiful gardens and peaceful ambiance that the gardens at Beaver Brook provide.
