How is the top floor of a parking garage in East Orange, New Jersey, transformed into a botanical oasis? Learn about the history of this Italianate garden designed by William T. Gotelli, from its installation in 1956 to its restoration in 2009, and how an extraordinary collection of azaleas, hydrangeas, lilacs, hostas, peonies, tree peonies, and a variety of spring-blooming trees exists alongside a 300-unit cooperative apartment community. Now celebrating its 67th anniversary, learn about this botanical treasure from those who have tended and ensured its legacy. We will tour and focus on renewal pruning of viburnum, azalea, ilex, yew, and other evergreens.
