Adopt-a-Garden: Minnesota State Horticultural Society

Two gorgeous gardens: Located outside the southwest corner of the Agriculture Horticulture Building, this garden is designed to peak during the State Fair and delight fairgoers. It’s home to a collection of hardy, low-maintenance plants encircling a water feature. A mix of Minnesota’s native and pollinator-friendly plants draws in bees, butterflies and hummingbirds and fills the late-summer landscape with colorful blooms. Edibles have been added to demonstrate how beautiful and functional they can be in the garden landscape. A raised garden, located just east of the Grandstand, in the plaza area, is packed full of dahlias. With 42 different varieties and countless hybrids, these Mexican flowering bushes come in a sea of vibrant colors, sizes and forms. A relative of sunflowers, daisies, chrysanthemums and zinnias, dahlias grow from tubers you can purchase from Dahlia Del’s collection during the Minnesota State Horticultural Society’s spring sale. Don’t miss the dahlia show the last Sunday and Monday of the State Fair in the Agriculture Horticulture Building. These two gardens are presented by the Minnesota State Horticultural Society,
