Wave Hill 3 of 3

The breezes from the Hudson help to cool keep it cool in the summer. We spent some time seated in the shade of an enormous Linden tree. The plants in the rock garden are randomly arranged in square tubs of varying sizes.

Wave Hill 1 of 3

The variety and quality of flowers at Wave Hill is exceptional. I am sorry but I do not know the names of many of these cultivars. If anyone can add a few names I would appreciate it.

The history of Wave Hill, starting in 1853, is interesting, see the history page at Wave Hill’s site.
