Wyck is a wonderful and historic garden and house in Germantown, one of the oldest areas of Philadelphia. This garden is remarkable because it was home to nine generations of the same Quaker family, the Wistars and the Haines, for about 300 years, from Colonial times to the 20th century.
The garden itself is best known for its Old Roses, which grow still in the original design design from the 1820s.
This beautiful property is well worth seeing. Read more about it at its web site, http://www.wyck.org, or on its page at the umbrella web site about public gardens in the Philadelphia area, http://www.GreaterPhiladelphiaGardens.org.
