The grounds that grace our building are far more than just a landscape—they compose stunning gardens that reflect the unique spirit and nature of our company. The gardens were established during the summer of 2002 and are already becoming widely known. Because we are an international company, the gardens are a gathering place for visitors from all over the world. They also serve the employees here at Morinda Bioactives Headquarters with a refreshing retreat from daily work. Local acclaim continues to grow as word spreads throughout the community of this treasure
There are 17 acres of property that include the Morinda Corporate building and other facilities. There are about 6 acres of turf grass. In addition, there is a large reflecting pool, waterfall, and a recirculating stream stocked with trout.
The 5.6 acre gardens are filled with a diverse assortment of plants, shrubs, and trees. There are at least 36 types of roses, 53 species of trees, and 47 varieties of ground cover. Approximately 5,000 perennials adorn the gardens, and over 45,000 bulbs are planted each fall. After the spectacular spring display, about 20,000 annuals are planted to keep the gardens blooming in a dramatic spectrum of color all season long.
The gardens boast over 80 different flower beds, such as the Japanese Garden Beds, Crabapple Alley, Cove Bed, Shade Garden, East Garden, Founders’ Garden, Terrace Beds, and more. Each bed uniquely suits its surroundings and is designed by our landscape designer using the palates of nature, including color, texture, size, and form.
Some of the garden areas were arranged into outdoor rooms. Rooms are defined with stone walls, columns, trellis and arbor structures, ornamental iron fencing, lattices, and rows of large caliper trees. Though the gardens are relatively young, the full-grown trees impart a unique feeling of maturity and permanence. Among the spectacular trees are the Dawn Redwoods, Sequoias, Weeping Blue Atlas Cedars, ‘Montgomery’ and ‘Hoopsii’ Spruce, Weeping White Pines, and many other interesting conifers.
