Courtyard Garden

This shaded garden is overflowing with ferns and native ephemerals like trilliums, mayapples, Virginia bluebells, and celadine poppies. Ephemerals grow, store nutrients, and flower during the early spring before the leaves emerge on the trees, and then go dormant during the summer months. The path and stream that meanders through the courtyard was restored during the 1991 reconstruction and was original to the property.
