At Rocky Hills, planting among the stone walls began in the 1950s by William and Henriette Suhr, whose legacy is continued by current owners Barbara and Rick Romeo. In May and June, the forget-me-nots, which are allowed full freedom throughout the garden, appear as clouds of perfect blue flowers among an ever-expanding rock garden, through the hills and terraces, walls and paths, and fern woodlands, finding good company with self-sown Primula and Spanish bluebells along the natural brook that serves as the heart of the garden. Tree peonies and an extensive planting of rhododendrons and azaleas compete for attention with the carpet of bulbs throughout the thirteen acres.
