The Sunflower Gardens were inspired by Pedrick Lowery’s enthusiasm for gardening. Pedrick, as a member of the Carolina Foothills Garden Club, was influential in creating the well-loved public space, Falls Park, in downtown Greenville, South Carolina, adjacent to Little Falls Park. At the center of one sunflower-shaped garden is a cool misting fountain, which highlights the complex pattern at the center of the sunflower.
