Formerly a swimming pool for the estate, this small garden features a non-traditional palette of primarily native plants in a formal design. Junipers, hollies and pines on the adjacent hillside provide food and cover for birds and other wildlife throughout the winter.
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.
