Our Gardens

Every April our gardens spring to life as we welcome back visitors. This year will mark the 100th anniversary of Charles Dexter purchasing the land where he began his rhododendron hybridizing work, and we expect a beautiful display of blooms throughout May into mid-June.

The 2020 expansion of North American Hydrangea Test Garden showcases some of the newest hydrangea cultivars on the market. Many of these cultivars are new to Heritage and will be maturing this season and begin to flower. The McInnes Garden will continue the popular pollinator theme, while the Garden of the Senses will feature a newly planted succulent area as well as more herbaceous perennials throughout.

THE HUNDRED ACRE SCHOOL

A School Unlike Any Other

Your child is filled with a natural curiosity, wonder, and desire to explore. When you nurture those impulses the right way, the results are remarkable. The Hundred Acre School was created to cultivate young minds using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) as a springboard to multidisciplinary learning.
