Chanticleer

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.

Love that fourth photo! I think conifers ARE sculptural pieces. Sometimes quite literally.

Good stuff. I like the nootkatensis! And that patio with the trees growing out of it. Nice!

Thanks, tj, Greenhaven, severnside, Garen, sluice and Edwin.

Edwin, the plants were not tagged. They have comprehensive lists of plants present in each garden area. They weren't always readily accessible, and with the youngin's there (I see that little Madeline has snuck into one of the photos), I wasn't able to give as much attention as I'd have liked to conifer ID, for the must part had to getting by with rough ID based on sight recognition. Is there anything in particular you'd like to ID? Let me know and I can try and track it down.

Here is a link that might be useful: Chanticleer Plant Lists
