SATURDAY, JULY 22, HENRY BOTANICAL GARDEN
This must-see garden is the home of the Henry Foundation for Botanical Research. “The Henry Botanic Garden is a historic garden created by Mary Gibson Henry (1884–1967), who was a noted 20th century horticulturalist, naturalist, and skilled field botanist. This garden provides a stunning untamed oasis in the heart of Gladwyne, Pennsylvania. The garden is home to an impressive number of superb collections of prominent plant families. With a strong focus on woody plants. A visitor can expect to see Magnolias, Styrax, Hamamelis, Halesia, and Rhododendrons — as well as a notable collection of herbaceous plants. The garden features broadly varied terrain portraying a host of natural environments, from high rugged stony outcroppings and spare alpine sites, to lush dappled forests, to soothing riparian glens, to broad open meadowland.” (from their website https://www.henrybotanicgarden.org/visit/ ) Our guide will be Susan Treadway, Curator at the Henry Foundation.
