WAVE HILL – WALKS WITH A GARDENER: AQUATIC & MONOCOT GARDENS
SEPTMEBER 8, 2023
Join Wave Hill gardener Chistopher Bivens for a special tour of its Aquatic and Monocot Gardens. This is a rare opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at some of Wave Hill’s premium gardens during their peak season, from the gardener tending them.
Tropical plants flourish in the Aquatic and Monocot Gardens during the summertime. Alive with diversity, the hum of insects, the rustle of leaves and the antics of fish skimming the water's surface animate this garden area. Guided by Wave Hill gardener Christopher Bivens, explore the design of these two formal gardens, where neatly trimmed hedges and symmetrical pergolas provide a framework for lush grasses, tropical plants and exotic water lilies. Wear your favorite sunhat! Severe weather cancels.
