The Garden Guide

Winterthur Garden

Winterthur is a 1,000-acre country estate with gardens, rolling hills, streams, meadows and forests. The Winterthur Garden was designed by Henry Francis du Pont (1880-1969) and landscape architect and lifelong friend Marian Coffin. Henry was careful to select plants that would enhance the natural setting and provide a succession of bloom and colour from late January through to November. The garden includes the eight-acre Azalea Woods (1917), the March Bank (1902), Magnolia Bend, the Pinetum (1918), Winterhazel Area (1923), Sundial Garden (1956), Peony Garden (1946), Reflecting Pool and Glade Garden (1929), Quarry Garden (1962), and Enchanted Woods (2001), a children’s garden. If you zoom in on the location map below, you will be able to see some of the garden features on the satellite image. The Sundial Garden is pinpointed by the red marker.
