This is a great facility to visit when you are in the Cleveland area. It is a fine collection of trees and shrubs and other landscape plants suited to this part of the world. Since it is on the south side of Lake Erie, it benefits from the "lake effect" which makes it a great environment for growing plants of all kinds.
