Give the traditional gift of flowers this Mother's Day
with a modern - and more permanent - twist!
The mother, super-woman, or mentor in your life deserves more than a wilting bouquet the week after her special day. Give her the lasting gift of a beautiful blooming tree or native wildflowers planted in her name at the ALFRED CALDWELL LILY POOL, Lincoln Park's only National Historic Landmark landscape. Or adopt a magnificent water lily! You and your gift recipient will receive a special card with the location and a photo of your tree or plant specie(s) along with your personalized message.
Each time your mother or special someone visits the Lily Pool, she'll know her tree, wildflowers or water lily are adding to the beauty of Alfred Caldwell's masterpiece.

GIVE HER A NATIVE ROSE BUSH - $100
These lovely native shrubs were chosen for the Lily Pool by Alfred Caldwell. Their pink flowers range from pale to bright pink. The shrub grows to three feet in height. Showy and fragrant, this rose shrub is also beneficial to native bees.
GIVE HER A HAWTHORN TREE - $750
The native Hawthorn tree is at its most beautiful each spring when a profusion of small white flowers cover its limbs. This tree grows to 10-15 feet in height with sometimes equal growth horizontally. Also available in a thornless variety. The average lifespan of the Hawthorn is 30-40 years. It produces a red, berry-like fruit each autumn that provides much-needed food for birds and small mammals in winter. Price includes planting and care by our experienced staff.
