Garden Seasons

Spring (March – May) is a fairy land of color with thousands of azaleas in many varieties. Pansies, candy tuft, wisteria and periwinkle greet birds and butterflies. Double file viburnum is nestled beneath lace canopies of pink and white dogwoods. Redbuds, peonies, saucer magnolia trees, and flowering yoshino and kwanzan cherry trees complete the scene.

Summer (June – August) proves the living is easy with the beautiful bright blooms of crape myrtles providing the perfect backdrop for a picnic. Day lilies, hundreds of annuals, and a variety of hostas emerge from the shelter of large magnificent pine trees. Trails trimmed with liriope flower in the warmth of the lazy summer sun.

Fall (September – November) finds glorious sasanquas in perfect bloom while the hardwood trees are ablaze with color. Pansies accent tranquil fountains, footbridges, and meandering trails.

Winter (December – February) is brightened by the beauty and charm of camellias and scented with the aroma of winter honeysuckle. The mild climate also welcomes daffodils and Lenten roses.
