Summer's Season of Color
"That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
And the landscape
Lay as if new, created in all the freshness of childhood."
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Experience the sights, sounds, fragrance and textures of nature in our garden paradise as June days lengthen to announce the beginning of summer. With the coming of July, the Gardens turn into a vibrant tableau of vivid colors and lush plantings, creating dramatic new vistas to announce the Summer Season of Color.
In the Valley Gardens, more than 1,500 rose bushes in vivid sweeps of red, pink, yellow and white color the hillsides. Nearby, more than a hundred thousand daylilies in over 500 varieties create sweeps of vivid color along hillsides covered with lush, green lawns.
Steps away rows of crape myrtle—the famous allées—proudly march across the ridges, displaying their bright banners in shades of pinks and reds.
Reflections sparkle in the afternoon sun, multiplying the beauty of hundreds of waterlilies adorning the Waterlily Gardens. More than 140 varieties of tropical and hardy waterlilies create a rainbow of color in the ponds.
The two entrance flower bridges are now covered with over flowing baskets of color and texture. From the Flower Bridge to Manor House Gardens’ seven terraces, massive plantings of thousands of annuals and perennials bejewel the landscape throughout the Gardens.
Henry James said, "Summer afternoon - Summer afternoon... the two most beautiful words in the English language." Treat yourself to a very special summer afternoon. Come to Gibbs Gardens to see the incomparable beauty of summer.
The entire Gardens’ staff strives for excellence in every aspect of our members’/visitors’ experiences at Gibbs Gardens. Please check our website gibbsgardens.com for Garden updates.
