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.
