Last weekend I visited Chanticleer garden in Wayne PA. Situated on 45 acres, the gardens have a quiet, intimate feeling. The use of conifers was confined to large-growing cultivars of well-known time-tested selections. Lots of interesting architecture here, and as you'll see the conifers were used almost as architectural pieces, sculptural exlamation points. Not quite the conifer collectors' garden, but very effective and engaging.
