The Wild Garden
Based on concepts championed by Irish gardener William Robinson in the 1870s, the Wild Garden invites the visitor to wander its narrow, winding paths.
Snowdrops and crocuses show off the first blooms of the year in late winter. Flowering continues through spring and summer and extends well into autumn. Late asters and salvias reach their peak in October.
Evergreens in the Wild Garden
Evergreens can easily be overlooked in summer. In winter, they become the mainstay of the winter landscape at Wave Hill, particularly in the Wild Garden.
Japanese forest grass cultivar
A chartreuse-colored selection of Japanese forest grass (Hakonechloa macra ‘All Gold’) lights up a shady section of the Wild Garden, providing a perfect foil to the darker greens of the surrounding plants.
