A public garden & cultural center

Elliptical Garden

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.
