Jean’s garden is a gem tucked into Pleasantville. She designed and planted the garden and maintains it herself. After years of collecting, she has acquired a large and varied dwarf conifer garden. The Japanese maple collection has more than forty different varieties. A zelkova and two Japanese emperor oak are among her rare trees. You will find a varied selection of shrubs. With a large garden, Jean has divided it into theme gardens that include a miniature, white, fern, and hosta garden as well as a chartreuse-and-purple room. Summer will show off the dahlias, varied zinnias and marigolds along with the other annuals. The natural rock formations and garden ornaments lend interest and beauty to Jean’s work.
