A public garden & cultural center

Paisley Bed

Named for its shape (like the motif in a Paisley pattern), the design of this whimsical garden changes every year, compliments of our talented gardeners. 

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.
