Bog Garden

The bog is the Arboretum’s most recent garden addition and, while it is small, it offers an interesting collection of plants.

Some, like cranberry and sphagnum moss are quite common but others are more exotic. You’ll see carnivorous sundews, pitcher plants and butterwort, beautiful grass pink and ladies’ tresses orchids, and even the endangered swamp pink.

Other bog plants include golden club, marsh marigold and lizard’s tail.
