Bloom Report

Our gardens and grounds are awash in beautiful color. Enjoy our favorite images of blooms taken this spring, then see the July report directly from our Director of Horticulture, Parker Andes.

July’s warm weather helps the estate gardens take on the feeling of that late Victorian period with tropical plants coming into their full splendor and the annual display beds filling out completely. The Conservatory area becomes the center of the garden with exuberant container displays of tropical plants inside and out, and shaded tables on the patio. While the Rose Garden is not in peak bloom, there are still plenty of fragrant blooms.  The water gardens in the Italian Garden come into full bloom mid-summer with lotus and water lilies of all colors growing larger each day.


Orchids, cyclamen, gingers, hoya, plumeria, begonias, bananas, brunfelsia, cape jasmine, gardenia, cactus, costus, and a wonderful display of container plants surrounding the glass houses
