This is a great time to visit spectacular spring display in historic Lakewold Gardens.
The Brick Walk with Mt. Fuji cherry trees.
This is a fine cherry species native to China, Japan and Korea. Cold hardiness zone 5-7.
As other garden's features, the Quatrefoil Pool was designed by renowned landscape architect, Thomas Church.
Boxwood parterre beds are filled with flowering plants.
Pacific dogwood (Cornus nuttalli) frame the Teahouse:
The Teahouse's lattice structure supports two old fashioned climbing roses: Cecile Brunner and Kathleen. Two other species of dogwood are also located nearby, Korean dogwood (Cornus kousa) and Cornelian cherry dogwood (Cornus mass).
There are over 900 rhododendrons in the Gardens
Read here about the History of the place.
I place the pictures in no particular order. They are taken in different garden rooms:
Fern Display Garden, Shade Garden, Woodland Garden, Rock Garden, Rose/Cutting Garden, The Knot Garden, Library Courtyard.
