Town Garden Plant Lists

Our Club has designed and developed these gardens throughout the town of Madison in support of ongoing civic
beautification. These plants have been chosen to suit each site condition and design consideration.
These gardens are tirelessly maintained by Club volunteers and are open to the public.
