In addition to tending gardens at Furman, Horticulturalist Sheree Wright also looks after swans at Furman Lake.

Sheree Wright is part of a crew of dedicated personnel at Furman University charged with keeping the campus beautiful. Part of her role as Furman’s horticulturalist is the care and feeding of the university’s Janie Earle Furman Rose Garden established in 1961. In a “Rose Chat” podcast, Wright toured the garden with correspondent Joshua Guerrero of YouTube channel “The Colorful Gardener.” Wright shared the history, upkeep methods and secrets to maintaining one of Furman’s most beloved enclaves.
