Tree of Life was created to represent the many beautiful trees, plants and flowers found at Living Legacy Gardens.
The gardens began in 2000. It was started to demonstrate perennials, annuals, herbs, shrubs, vines, fruits, native plants, and trees hardy to USDA Zone 3. The landscape design was developed in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Landscape Design Program and Meadowbrook Landscaping professionals, along with community and student volunteers.
The gardens are constantly changing throughout the seasons. The main gardens consist of sun-loving perennials, annuals, shrubs, and trees. There are also pollinator friendly gardens that hum throughout the warm summer months with the sweet music of the bees and the butterflies. We also have shade gardens comprised of hostas, bleeding hearts, ferns, and heucheras. The last section of our gardens is the herb gardens composed of sage, basil, thyme, mint, oregano, chicory, chives, and many more. The gardens are a beautiful site for photos or a time for rest and relaxation.
