Which one would I plant in my yard? Anyone from this list, but something in the name 'Professor Sprenger' does resonate with me! It is a lovely tree that greets visitors on the Snyder Terrace at the Arboretum. Others you can see easily at the Arboretum are: 'Donald Wyman' planted in mass in the first parking lot bay across from the Oswald Visitor Center; 'Adirondack' marks the entrance to the espalier in the Cloister Herb Garden; 'PrairiFire' makes the double allée at the Sensory Garden, 'Pink Spires' flanks the entry to the new Green Play Yard at the Andrus Learning Center, and two 'Prairie Maid' trees fill an island in the staff parking lot.
