Mexican Garden Bed
The Mexican revolution that ended in 1920 sparked a cultural awakening with influences on the life and work of Frida Kahlo. In her garden, there was a movement away from the European style and an embrace of Mexican native plants. In this area you will find colorful perennials that have roots in Mexico.
