Master Gardener Gary Whittenbaugh of Fran Mara Garden in Oelwein believes the most complete and triumphant expression of gardening may be the rock garden. This is epically true if you include a few miniature and the smaller dwarf conifers. Rock gardens give us almost limitless plant choices and a long blooming season unequaled by any other type of garden.
