This outstanding garden is open to the public free of charge which is an unusual thing today...in my experience anyway. When we visited in June, there was a wonderful display of iris in full bloom. The hosta garden contains hundreds of cultivars that are nicely labeled. Make a point to see this garden if you are in the area.
