Castle Terrace Garden

About this Planting
Surrounding Yew Dell's iconic Castle, this is one of the most visible and best loved bulb plantings each year. With more than 4,000 bulbs in this planting alone, the varieties are selected for long bloom and big impact. The Tulip 'Slawa' was one of our favorites last year, so this year it is featured across the entire Castle display. And interplanted we have a few brand new Big Bloom varieties this year.

About this Planting
This is the home of our growing Intersectional/Itoh Peony collection. These plants are hybrids between the tree peonies and herbaceous garden peonies, making them less susceptible to powdery mildew, and overall sturdier garden plants. The peony display is best enjoyed in May, so we like to add pops of color in the early spring using a 1,500 bulb sweep of perennial Grape Hyacinths (Muscari) and 300 Parrot Tulips. In closer proximity to the castle it's important that this area looks colorful and fits with the theme for the area.
