Indianapolis Symposium - June 7-9, 2019

Indianapolis, declared by the National Park Service to be the “Capital at the Crossroads of America”, is anxious to show you Hoosier Hospitality as we host the annual Boxwood Symposium June 7-9, 2019. We are planning three great days of tours for your enjoyment!

Several private gardens are included in the tours which range from estate gardens to backyard Midwest gardens. Diversity is the spice of life after all! We will be visiting two ABS members’ home gardens, those of Louise and Larry Smith, and Ron and Linda Williams. Both gardens are in Fishers, Indiana, just north of Indianapolis. We will enjoy appetizers and cocktails at one, and dinner at the other.

In addition to these private gardens, we will be visiting Newfields, a 152-acre campus for Nature and the Arts. Newfields encompasses the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the J.K. Lilly Home, the Hundred Acres Park, the Elder Greenhouse, and the Garden which was designed by the Olmsted Brothers firm. This “campus approach” to art and nature is new to the former Lilly estate and has been enthusiastically received. We are pleased that you will have the opportunity to experience it all!

Please check back as we update our itinerary and open our registration process.
