The Orchard

Orderly rows of Robinson Crabapples appear as guests walk from (Vine Arbor) to the (Edible Garden). Underneath the linear design of the crabapples, a filigree of airy perennials including muhly grass, Muhlenbergia capallaris 'White Cloud', and patrinia, Patrinia scabiosifolia dance about. Keep an eye out for a dazzling display of bright and happy daffodils in the spring and daylilies throughout the summer.

Vine Arbor

Take a cool break in the shade of endless vines wrapped around the arbor beside the Great Lawn.
