A public garden & cultural center

Flower Garden

Surrounded by a rustic cedar fence, this exuberant garden unfolds from month to month with inspired groupings of plants.  As the season progresses, perennials, annuals, and tender plants billow into the pathways, blurring the formal lines of the beds. Additional colors and textures in an ever-changing assortment of container plants add to the richness of the overall design.

Highlights this Summer

Just a taste of what's blooming at Wave Hill

African Lily

African Lily (Agapanthus africanus)

In summer, the African lily bears large rounded umbels of violet flowers above strap-like basal leaves. As it is not frost-hardy, this clump-forming, evergreen perennial from South Africa is container-grown at Wave Hill.
