June Horticultural Highlights

Though May might be the peak of spring bloom, there is still plenty of interest in June. Rhododendrons, Mountain Laurel, and Kousa Dogwoods add plenty of late-spring color to the landscape. The annual and perennial plants planted in flower beds throughout the Cemetery are now also at their peak.
