A public garden & cultural center

T. H. Everett Alpine House

Diminutive rock garden plants thrive in the Alpine House. These tough little plants are perfectly suited to life atop wind-swept mountains. Additional alpines reside in the rustic troughs on the sunny terrace in front of the Alpine House and in the adjacent Alpine Wall. 

Highlights this Summer

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.
