Renovated during the summer of 2019, the Shiloh Garden at Old Pond greets the visitor to ZooMontana and the Yellowstone Arboretum with a burst of color, texture and organic feel. The woody shrubs were selected for their hardiness and survival characteristics of Zones 2-3-4. They will compliment the surrounding Austrian Pines and Cedar trees and provide eye candy in the raised planter and encompassing green lawn.

The following plants were installed. Detailed descriptions are below:
