Bloom Report

Our gardens and grounds are awash in beautiful color. Enjoy our favorite images of blooms taken this week, then see the detailed weekly report directly from our Director of Horticulture, Parker Andes. You can expect to see these blooms now through the end of May.

The extensive plantings of mountain laurel, deutzia, and large mock orange shrubs blooming along Approach Road makes this the best time of year to enjoy the 3 mile drive up to the house. Across the estate, herbaceous perennials are filling the beds with color. The rose garden is gaining color every day towards its peak bloom in the coming week. Stop and smell the roses! The gardeners have filled all the containers with tropical plants and colorful blooms that will develop throughout the growing season. During the week there will be some soil work happening in the Walled Garden to improve drainage; some beds will be empty with equipment working in them.
