Charles & Clark Malmo Garden
The late Jean Malmo created this garden to remember her husband Clark and his father Charles, both prominent Seattle nurserymen. Jean also donated 125 Bosnian pines, Pinus leucodermis, to the young Arboretum, and those pines became its 'bones,' providing structure as new gardens were created. The Jean Malmo estate continues supporting the Arboretum through an endowment.
Milton Sutton Conifer Gardens
Milton Sutton and his wife Helen were early supporters of the Arboretum at South. These conifer gardens were installed in his memory. One, combined with understory plants, creates woodland shade in the center of the Arboretum. Across the path, the Milton Sutton Dwarf Conifer garden, with its heaths and heathers, is especially colorful in winter.
Mabel Davis Garden
Mabel Davis was an early conservationist and community leader. Her garden surrounds the Gazebo, which was funded by the Federated Women's Club and built by their husbands in 1985. The Gazebo offers views of downtown Seattle and the Seattle Chinese Garden.
