The gardens at Tranquil Lake Nursery are known for their abundant and colorful blooms and distinctive foliage that carries the interest in the garden from early spring throughout the summer and into the fall. Warren Leach, garden designer and co-owner of Tranquil Lake Nursery will take you on a walking tour of the gardens, during the dog-days of summer to showcase a diverse palette of common and lesser know perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees that stand up to the summer heat with foliage and distinctive flowers that add interesting architecture, structure, texture, form, pattern and freshness to the sunny or shady border. He will also offer design tips to help you make pleasing plant combinations using complementary foliage and texture for the hot summer border.
