The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society recently described Barbara and Robert Tiffany’s home, Mill Fleurs, as “a seemingly idyllic 10-acre setting on the often-raging Tohickon Creek. Dramatic rocky woodland slopes and streambank gardens are home to unusual trees, shrubs and perennials. Barbara has a passion for hostas and has incorporated a large collection (over 1,100 varieties) into the varied landscapes, along with 325 differ-ent rhodondendrons, 135 epimediums, dozens of dogwoods, and an unknown amount of rare Asian woodland plants. The rich plant collections have been arranged into a seamless whole, art-fully displayed for color and form, texture and scale.”
We have been invited to visit this beautiful garden, one year be-fore it goes on tour for the American Hosta Society Convention in 2018, on one condition. Barbara needs our help in identifying some of the hostas in the garden that have lost their labels! So please come, take a leisurely stroll through the garden, and bring your hosta identification skills with you! And while you are there be sure to visit Tiffany Peren-nials, their onsite nursery specializing in rare and unusual Asian plants. You will see many plants for sale that you will not find anywhere else.
*** NOTE: If you wish to visit the Tiffany Garden after Russell’s, LUNCH IS ON YOUR OWN. The Tiffany Garden will not be open until AFTER 1 p.m.
