Spring Blooms

The grounds of the Study are filled with blooming wildflowers. Wild hyacinth, allium, iris, wood violets, prairie trillium are just some of the wonderful plants found on the Study grounds.

Gardens are in the process of being planted. Cannas, elephant ears, caladiums, castor beans, lantana are some of the plants that will be on display throughout the summer. The children's garden is featured this year, with local children doing the planting. Lamb's ear (please touch) and cherry tomatoes are some of the fun plants in this garden. Cool season pansies and alyssum were planted during the Lew Wallace Birthday Celebration. Marigolds are to be planted soon and the garden will be filled with lots of bright colorful flowers.
