We house dozens of varieties, all carefully selected for their ornamental attributes and sweet-smelling fragrances, and add complementary plantings for unmatched beauty.
The large specimen fringe tree (Chionanthus virginicus) on the northeastern side of the garden has the most heavenly fragrance in May and butter yellow leaves in the fall, which provide a beautiful juxtaposition against the vibrant reds and pinks that dominate the space.
This garden comes complete with an octagonal pool, brilliant compositions, and inviting benches. The iconic arches are covered with the Maid-of-Kent rose, which is a rare find outside of England. And yes—this area has seen more than its fair share of courtships, proposals, and weddings.
