The Ribbon Garden

Dedicated in memory of Jeanne Hylant by the Hylant Family Foundation

Gardeners around Ohio can tell you how difficult it can be to find the right mix of beautifully blooming plants for every season. That’s especially true when gardening primarily with native species. This garden at the heart of the ice ribbon has been planted in memory of Jeanne Hylant, a gifted gardening enthusiast. Using a mixture of native and non-invasive exotic species, this area showcases plants that can survive in urban site conditions while still providing environmental benefits. These bold and unconventional combinations provide year-round beauty for all to enjoy.

Jeanne's Gardening Tips:

  • Invite kids into the garden to get their hands & knees dirty with you.
  • A little love and tenderness turns the weakest plant into a beauty!
  • Remember: Keeping gardens beautiful to our eyes also soothes our souls.
