Approximate number of flowers that make up the W Design Garden on the University Avenue side of Humanities.

There are 850 white and 600 red plants, and the UW uses a variety of vinca called Pacifica. Until 2011, the W Design Garden used Pizzazz begonias, but vincas are less susceptible to disease, according to gardener Larry Kraak, and they also hold up better in a drought. The flowers were installed just prior to graduation weekend.
