Our spring colorfest continues in May with evergreen rhododendrons, both native and hybrid selections, and late blooming azaleas. Chinese fringe tree, Chionanthus retusus and its American cousin, Chionanthus virginicus, perfume the air with their fleecy white flowers. The Monet bridge is festooned with wisteria (native and Chinese) and Iris bloom along the edges of the ponds.
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.
Don’t miss the dozens of mountain laurels, Kalmia latifolia, with their striking blooms and glossy green foliage, as well as the arbor below the Manor House covered with the fragrant, soft pink flowers of the ‘New Dawn’ rose.
