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. You will find mature specimens of black walnut and ash, complemented by weeping beech, dawn redwood, stewartia, dogwood, and an impressive collection of magnolias and conifers. Tree peonies and an extensive planting of rhododendrons and azaleas compete for attention with the carpet of bulbs throughout the thirteen acres. Most impressive in May and June are the forget-me-nots, which are allowed full freedom throughout the garden. Starting on the hillside meadow, clouds of perfect blue flowers appear among an ever-expanding rock garden, through the hills and terraces, walls and paths, and fern woodlands, finding good company with self-sown Primula along the natural brook that serves as the heart of the garden. Garden is partially accessible.
