Donate to The Pearl Fryar Garden

I’ll make this post a simple one. I’ve known Pearl Fryar for a very long time and there’s going to come a day when he is unable to take care of this magnificent garden and we need to make sure his vision stay’s alive.

“I like to let people see what they want to in my plants. The creativity comes in making a shape that speaks to me in one way but may say something else to everyone else.” – Pearl Fryar

If there is anyway you can help please do, know you are helping preserve a great American garden by a great American topiarist and artist, and one hell of a great man.


Make a donation today and help ensure Pearl’s magnificent garden is kept open to inspire future generations. Funding is needed for staff, tools, plants, repair work, and visitor information.
