Description of the Event: 

We are pleased to present a bus tour to Lake Cliff Gardens, located on the
shore of Lake Michigan in Benton Harbor Michigan. Lake Cliff Garden
is a 5-acre botanical wonder located on a dramatic cliff overlooking Lake
Michigan, with a focus on tropical plants from all over the world. These
tender, mature plants, which are dug each fall and moved to a greenhouse,
are supported by over 2500 additional plants that Barbara and Ron Weirich start from seed each year, along with outstanding exotic specimens of trees, shrubs, and perennials that are hardy in a Zone 6 garden. With this almost unlimited plant palette, the garden is designed around a series of garden rooms dedicated to various specialties, with sculptures created by Barbara and Ron integrated into the landscape.

Featured three times in Fine Gardening Magazine, Lake Cliff Gardens is an amazing
showcase of garden and landscape art at its best.
