What's in Bloom?
August: Roses, lilies, phlox, astilbe, hostas, rudbeckia and cardinal flower. Annuals in pot and urns are at their peak throughout the garden.
In the Sunken Garden, perennial beds flank four long planting beds dedicated to displaying annuals in a formal pattern. The pattern changes annually. This year, 225 flats, or 10,800 begonias in colors from white, deep rose and red were placed in a diamond pattern. The perennial gardens offer a continuous show of colors throughout the season.
Inside Cranbrook House, working with Archives, the Auxiliary has replaced the shades on the sconces in the main hall with period-correct examples of amber glass.
