History in the Making at Fort Worth Botanic Garden
History in the Making this Friday at Fort Worth Botanic Garden History will be in the making this Friday, February 24, as 10, 200-gallon magnolias and a 200-gallon live oak will be rolled into place and planted on either side of the ramp in the historic rose garden of the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. This rose garden is on the National Register of Historic Places. Ralph Duesing, Dallas architect, has created a new, formal design for the rose garden, and we are in the midst of implementing that design by installing these magnolias. Shrubs he specified for hedges have already been planted on either side and down the center of the ramp, as have huge containers planted with blue agaves. These 10 additional magnolias will be icing on the cake and will create an even more formal and impressive look in the rose garden. Please find attached a current photo of the rose garden. I encourage any and all members of the media to capture this historic moment on Friday. The trees will start to be planted around 9:00 a.m.
