  • New Plantings in the Arboretum: 2019 in Review

Last year was another very busy year for new plantings in the Arboretum. Notable projects included a much-needed refreshment of the Viburnum Collection along the new Loop Trail and a major expansion of the Australia Entry Garden in Pacific Connections. With funding from the Arboretum Foundation, significant strides were made in the restoration of the Lake Washington Boulevard Corridor and the rejuvenation of Rhododendron Glen.

In the latest issue of the Arboretum Bulletin, UW Botanic Gardens Curator of Living Collections Ray Larson describes these exciting new botanical additions—and many more—and how to find them in the park.
