Flowers Around Storyland In Glen NH White Mountains

Yesterday my family visited Storyland in Glen, NH. Taking the kids to Storyland is a tradition going back a generation or two for many New England families. Storyland is nestled in the White Mountains which makes for a lovely drive to a scenic area. While there, I couldn't resist snapping some shots of the gardens and planters. We saw gardeners at work keeping the grounds beautiful. As far as amusement parks go, Storyland is one of the prettiest I've seen, thanks to their creative gardeners. I thought you'd like to see some of their work.

Below: This plant was used in borders along walkways. I have never seen it before but the leaves look like maple leaves. Anyone know what it is?

What a charming place! That looks like a must see to me! That maple leaf plant is interesting- I have no clue what it is either! I tried some different terms to google but only came up with a tree called
Liquidambar styraciflua Variegata-Variegated Sweetgum. Doesn't seem like they would plant trees there and so small? Interesting- I wonder if you can call there and ask? Cute posting, I enjoyed it!

I wonder if this might be it: Abutilon 'Souvenir de Bonn' If I'm right, it will get hybiscus like flowers which means I'll have an excuse to take the kids to Storyland again to see it in bloom!
