In noted nurseryman George Ellwanger’s private garden, established in 1867, cherry, peach and pear trees still bloom in the spring along with tree peonies and viburnums and a multitude of ephemeral perennials and bulbs.

See the garden in its spring splendor from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays during the Lilac Festival (May 13th & 14th, and May 20th & 21st). Free of charge.
