Date & Time
Alexandra Munroe is a scholar and curator who approaches gardens as exhibitions, journeys through interlinked ideas, visions, and experiences. Like the adjacent beach and ocean, most of her gardens are open to sky and sun. Many are also large scale, including the meadow, parterre, and croquet lawn which form a visual plinth for the landward side of their long, shingle-style house. In contrast, an extraordinary woodland walk showcasing choice Asian plants is all but invisible to the casual observer. Enclosing an intimate, inviting space, towering cryptomeria, cypress, and rhododendron are underplanted with shade-loving perennials, including a collection of rare Ariseama. Dr. Munroe will welcome guests into this sanctum, and discuss the ideas and plants that make it so very special. Space is limited; registration required.
