These 4 to 6-foot shrubs are found in many areas of the park and will be planted near the Myrtle Ave playground, South Portland entrances, and in the Willoughby area. With broad leaves shaped like oak leaves, these shrubs have flowers that range from white to pink to purple that bloom throughout the summer.
Blooming in late winter and early spring, Hellebore’s remind us that winter won’t last forever while helping with erosion control as all the snow melts. You’ll find them at the Willoughby, South Portland, and DeKalb and Washington entrances.
While it may look whimsical, Lily Turf is a tough evergreen that is a crucial player in saving our slopes. Find these groundcover plants at the South Portland slope and entry.
