Schedel Foundation Arboretum and Gardens

Search Elmore Ohio

Of the 17+ acres of intensely managed grounds, about one half is upland and the remainder is lowland. The lowland habitat provides shelter that offers ideal growing conditions for many species which normally grow only at lower latitudes. Each year more than 15,000 annuals are transplanted from greenhouse to the grounds. Just a few of the interesting trees to see are 25 varieties of Japanese maple, Ben Franklin tree; Golden chain tree; Cucumber magnolia; Bamboo; Japanese katsura; and nearly 50 varieties of lilacs. The Japanese Garden includes graceful bridges, stone lanterns, and a stupa - a pagoda-like stone memorial tower. Two waterfalls empty into pools which, in turn, flow into two separate lakes - the aquatic home for fascinating species of fish, amphibians, ducks from many lands, blue herons, white egrets, and a pair of Bald Eagles that nest nearby. Also located on the grounds is the mansion which served as the Schedel home.
