High on Chanticleer Garden


This is one of dozens of to-die-for spots I found at Pennsylvania's Chanticleer Garden this week.  This lush "pleasure garden" proves, as all my favorite gardens do, that shrubs make the garden. Those mid-range mounds of chartreuse?  Spireas.  Awesome with purples.   The garden's one-of-a-kind hardscape also helps. 

More coming soon from my trip to Chanticleer, the Scott Arboretum and the Morris Arboretum.  In a word?  OMIGOD.


  1. Philly has some great gardens. Funny, when I lived there I didn’t appreciate them! I go back every year just to garden hop.

  2. Chanticleer, the whole damn thing, is absolutely to die for. I remember this view, Susan, and loved it too, although it was mid-summer and the alliums were brown when we saw it. I can’t wait to go back and see Chanticleer again one day.
