A public garden & cultural center

T. H. Everett Alpine House

Diminutive rock garden plants thrive in the Alpine House. Evergreen boughs protect plants in outdoor troughs from drying winter winds. Early-bloooming alpines make their appearance in February.

Highlights this Winter

Just a taste of what's blooming at Wave Hill


Moraea (Moraea polystachya)

This cormous perennial bears numerous short-lived, iris-like flowers on branching stems. Native to the veldt of southern Africa, Moraea grows under seasonal moisture, and requires a dry dormancy after flowering.
