There are memorial tree plantings along the five educational trails in the Arboretum. The garden also contains over 27 varieties of shrubs and 20 types of perennial and ornamental grasses. Mass plantings of spring flowering daffodils and summer flowering daylilies are scattered throughout so color can be seen all year. Flowering plants include Parrotia Persian, Arnold Promise Witch Hazel, Crabapples, Dogwoods, Magnolias, and the Royal Empress Tree.
