The Test Garden


The Acorn Landscapes' Test Garden,
Planned and Maintained by Mary Francois Deweese

(The song "Country Living On My Mind" is available at iTunes, Amazon, or djdeweese.com)

In order to serve our clients at the highest level, Acorn Landscapes has studied a wide variety of plants for use in the St. Louis and surrounding areas. The following list of plants are all successfully grown and tended in our test garden. (We are not a nursery and do not have plants for sale, the Acorn Garden is purely for display and testing of plant varieties for educational purposes of staff and clients. If you would like additional information, or a private tour of the garden, please contact us.)
