The May Watts Reading Garden is open seven days a week, during the growing season, April through October. The garden can be entered from the Sterling Morton Library. Or, when the library is closed on Sunday and Mondays, you can reach the garden through the entrance gate on the north side.
The garden was designed by Watts and librarian Mary Moulton and contains intriguing and unusual plants. They include May T. Watts hosta (Hosta 'May T. Watts'), Orange Meadowbrite™ coneflower (Echinacea 'Art's Pride'), and, against the library's walls, magnificent espaliers of dawn redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) and ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba).
