Notes:
This garden, an island street divider, is an example of small scale civic planting. Sponsored, planted, and maintained for over ten years by volunteers, it creates a display near several commercial establishments. Winter hardy shrubs, perennials, and bulbs were chosen for changing colorful contrasts through a six months season starting in early spring with pink perennial tulips. Amendment with proprietary crystals decreases the need for frequent watering in hot weather. Named after a founder of a beautification effort, the garden is "a neighborhood highlight."
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Town of Hamden; Jonathan Ingersoll (gardener, 1996-present); Claire Ingersoll (gardener, 1996-present); and Louis Lettiero (gardener, 1996-present).
