The Gardens at Wave Hill House
Wave Hill is a slice of heaven for garden lovers and nature enthusiasts. It features 28 acres of woodland, carefully planted gardens and grounds dotted with benches perfect for sitting and admiring the surrounding beauty. Numerous specimens of trees including sugar maples, dove trees and bigleaf magnolia provide a majestic backdrop for the varied gardens that are planted throughout the year.
Highlights of this remarkable property include the Flower Garden, which showcases a stunning selection of plantings including new and vintage perennials, exotic flowers and annuals that burst with colour.
Delicate plants from around the globe thrive all year round in the Marco Polo Stufano Conservatory. Named for the estate’s founding horticulture director, the Conservatory is comprised of three glass houses: the Palm House with exotic plants such as bright South African bulbs, the Tropical House featuring plants from humid regions and the Cacti and Succulent House which is home to plants that come from areas in the world with little rainfall.
Inspired by the wild garden planted by notable 19th century garden designer and Irish writer William Robinson, the Wild Garden at Wave Hill boasts a selection of wild species from around the world. Visitors will be delighted by the vistas from this area of the estate as well as the gazebo which dates back to the early 1900s.
