 The Cornell Plantations gardens in Ithaca, New York are intoxicating in summer!  

This is the YOUNG FLOWER GARDEN there.  This garden celebrates our responses to significant plants by revealing how these plants are reflected in art, literature, ceremony, the symbolic meanings they communicate, 

and the emotions they evoke

The Young Flower Garden is a combination of annuals, perennials, and shrubs hardy to a northern climate. 
They have booklets that focus on the lore and cultural uses of 10 common flowers: the rose, carnation, daisy, sunflower, poppy, lily, iris, tulip, peony, and chrysanthemum.
