South of the Treehouse, between Sara’s Storybook Garden and the pond.


A variety of shrubs and trees are planted to diversify the canopy of the space and to increase shade for the hostas.  Over 110 varieties of hostas and other shade garden plants are planted and maintained by the North Central WI Master Gardeners Association.  The garden will achieve recognition by the American Hosta Association.  The garden is approximately 1 acre in size and is bordered by trails and Sara’s Garden.
