The Gardens at Yew Dell offer a delightful place to spend a day, an excellent place to
learn new plants and provide an opportunity to check out design details for your own garden. The gardens range from formal to informal and contain everything from trees to shrubs, annuals and perennials and everything else you can imagine. And while variety is the consistent theme, the one thing you can always count on is that there is always something blooming at Yew Dell - 12 months of the year.
But Yew Dell's gardens also support our ongoing research aimed at finding the best new plants for regional gardens. Each plant in our gardens is evaluated for performance. And when we find a new winner, we work with local industry members to get the plant into production . . . and eventually into area garden centers. We're always on the lookout for pest-resistant, attractive and well-adapted plants for our gardens and for yours.
