Shade Garden

Georgia<br>Perimeter<br>College Botanical Garden


Below are a few pictures of the Shade Garden. These few photos can hardly due it justice as there are about twenty beds of plants. These are just a few pictures of the beautiful shade garden and the wonders it holds. This year, 2008, the garden so far is doing extremely well with a number of plants which have come up for the first time. We hope you get to enjoy them.

The pictures are in order of the days and months of the year with larger pictures first. This is done so that you can get an idea of what is showing and blooming in the garden throughout the year.

All pictures are the property of the photographers - William Belknap, George Sanko or Linda Pirkle. They are the sole property of the photographers and may not be used for any commercial purpose. Please feel free to use them in any other way.
