Tyler Arboretum is delighted to announce the addition of a stunning mural, entitled “The Promise of Spring,” to our grounds. The mural, which is located on the Diamond Doorway (#7) in the Wister Rhododendron Garden section of our 650-acre public garden in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, was created by local artist Stephanie Untz.
“The Promise of Spring” mural showcases a range of native plants, trees, birds, and pollinators, rendered in bright and vivid colors. According to Stephanie, “Tyler Arboretum has always been a special place for me personally since we moved to Media 5 years ago. It’s the place that has always brightened any tough day being a new mother and one of the first places that piqued my interest in native plants and growing my own garden.”
Stephanie visited the area around the mural’s location during the fall and winter months, taking note of the different plant signs and gathering feedback from Tyler Arboretum’s knowledgeable staff members, Mike Karkowski and Christian Stoltz. She spent the winter researching and selecting the plants, trees, birds, and pollinators to include in her design.
