A new member of the Dogwood Arts Trail opened its garden for tours on Sunday.

Members of the Church Street United Methodist have been working for months to the the garden ready for the tour.

Now nearly 40 dogwood trees are in full bloom in the church's garden, containing 200 species of plants.

Lead Gardener Lisa Stanley said members of the congregation wanted to incorporate two very important things in their garden.

"First of all, they had a love for the church, and then they had a love for the plants that they enjoy at their own homes," said Stanley. "They came together and made it quite a joy to see."

Many of the garden's plants are labeled with digital QR codes, which allow people to scan a code through their phones to learn more about the plant.

The Dogwood Arts Festival runs through April 30.
