Summer means breathtaking scenery and gorgeous blooms throughout our grounds and Conservatory. Discover the Waterlily Display, which showcases aquatic plants from all over the world. Get lost in our Meadow Garden, with three miles of walking trails through a rolling Brandywine Valley landscape. Be inspired in our Idea Garden, where we display annuals, perennials, vegetables, and some of the newest varieties of plants on trial.

The revitalized Main Fountain Garden awakens for its second spectacular season and we plan to celebrate all summer long. Join us for daily fountain performances in our Main Fountain Garden and Open Air Theatre. Experience Illuminated Fountain Performances and Live Music in our Beer Garden on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings.

Please note: Illuminated Fountain Performances continue through October 27 and Daytime Fountain Performances continue through October 28 during Autumn’s Colors.
