We had the great joy in touring the gardens in early April, almost had the place to ourselves. I look forward to visiting sometime again when in the area. I have tried to contact someone involved with the gardens to learn about the plantings, but am having difficulty. There was a lovely small white flower near the East Woodland Garden, almost cactus looking, but not a cactus. The flower was no more than 6 inches high, an early spring flower. If anyone knows what it is, we would appreciate finding out its name.
In the Living Landscape of the Kendall Sculpture Gardens, Russell Paige's vision and design intentions have come into maturity. I believe that the ways in which he worked with nature in his plant choices and distributions have resulted in living sculpture at its highest level. While orchestrating the foundations of many parts of the landscape at Pepsico, I imagine he,knowing his plant palette as he did, foresaw this masterpiece much as as we see it now. The beauty he instilled is truly inspiring.
The exceptional Tree and Shrub forms that were carefully chosen make up a juried Arboretum. The Horticultural and Arboricultural practices on these grounds are exemplary....one could learn a great deal from those who have set the practice standards here,and from those who have so beautifully implemented them.
We the Public are fortunate to be able to enjoy this beautiful place on most any day of any week.
Thankyou. Sincerely, Ellen Cool
Beautiful, and a great place to bring a picnic lunch with the family!
This is an incredible garden. Russell Page redesigned the garden along the lines of an English Park. This is how art and sculptre should be seen. The garden allows picnics and has a wonderful trail that will take you all around the entire park. The planting and the art form a relationship that I have never seen anywhere else.
