Marguerite Kress Oval


A Contemporary Rose Garden 

A new interpretation of the formal rose garden is created in this contemporary rose garden through the interplanting of hardy roses and perennials. Extensive use of shrub roses mixed with season-spanning perennials is part of a trend toward low-maintenance and environmentally friendly gardens. The bronze sculpture Serenade, found in the Kress Oval, depicts George Kress playing his violin as wife Marguerite listens with a rose on her lap. A bench extends so that garden visitors can join Marguerite in appreciating the beauty of the roses.
