Event Description

Stop to smell the roses.  While there, hear the wind pass through century-old trees, see the riot of color in the garden, and listen to a gardening expert. Before fiber optics, solar-powered path lights, and LEDs, gardeners relied on a more natural approach to evening landscape highlights—they planted white flowers.  See this technique and learn about other traditional landscaping tricks during Brucemore in Bloom—Thursday, May 26 at 5:30 p.m.

Join Head Gardener David Morton as he traces the development of the gardens from the original plan conceived by prominent landscape architect O.C. Simonds to the integration of function, recreation, and entertainment in Irene Douglas’s vision for the country estate. View current plants and landscape techniques that continue to help preserve the historically accurate, prairie-style design by Simonds.
