Our spring colorfest continues in May with 1,000’s of roses flowering throughout the Gardens. The arbor below the Manor House is covered with soft pink ‘New Dawn’ roses.
Japanese maples glow in the landscape and reflections in the ponds create a dramatic effect. Lush ferns including natives like the cinnamon and royal fern provide interesting architectural elements.
Soon hydrangeas will begin to bloom. Check the bloom calendar and take note that with all the mild weather we had in April and May, plants are blooming about two weeks ahead of schedule.
