JGarden Description:The Ladew estate features 15 garden ‘rooms’, a Nature Walk and a historic Manor House. The gardens and Nature Walk are self-guided, and the House tour is guided. From the formal Rose garden to the Cottage garden, Water Lily garden and Victorian garden, visitors will enjoy an array of color, texture and form throughout the seasons. The highlight of the gardens is their topiary. Ladew’s topiary sculpture garden contains many examples of this craft ranging from Winston Churchill’s top hat and victory sign to a unicorn and seahorse. Topiary are located throughout the property, most notably the Hunt Scene by the entrance to Ladew that displays a hunter on horseback following hounds in pursuit of a fox. The Nature Walk provides visitors with an excellent example of habitat and local species. In addition to the gardens and Nature Walk, the historic Manor House is open for tours. Visitors can enjoy English antiques, paintings, photographs, sketches and fox hunting memorabilia. The Oval Library is featured in the book 100 Most Beautiful Rooms in America. Groups of 15 or more are asked to make arrangements for tours 2 weeks in advance. 




Talking before the iris flowers:
This also is one of the pleasures
Of traveling.
