Gardens Aquatic plants close up

The summer heat encourages tropical plants to flourish in the Aquatic and Monocot Gardens. Evening offers an escape from the heat, and the garden seems to come alive with the hum of insects, the rustle of leaves, and the antics of fish skimming the surface of the water. Guided by Wave Hill gardener Christopher Bivens, explore the design of these two formal gardens, where neatly trimmed hedges and symmetrical pergolas provide a framework for lush grasses, tropical plants and exotic water lilies.

Rain date: Wednesday, August 25

Registration required, online or at 718.549.3200 x251, and closes at noon on Tuesday, August 17. The program fee includes admission to the grounds. Space is extremely limited. Questions? Please email us at or call the telephone number and extension above.
