In this exhibition, pieces made by the Philadelphia fiber artist Melissa Haims and volunteer needleworkers are displayed on trees, plants and man-made structures throughout the Arboretum. The exhibition opens on March 26 with an appearance by Haims from 1 to 3 pm.
Arboretum Guides will point out small trees that make a big impact. Ranging in height from 15 to 30 feet, these trees have many special features, for instance, spectacular bark, interesting forms, and great flower and leaf color. This tour includes plants such as White Fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus) that has richly-scented, spring blooming flowers that are show stopping.
