These gardens include wonderful examples of:  (1) bonsai and other container trees; (2) rare forms (espalier, pollard, self-grafting, witch’s broom); and (3) significant full-size trees.

The latter include an excellent Cottonwood (Populus deltoides); Bald Cypress with knees (Taxodium distichum); probably Pennsylvania’s champion Golden Rain Tree (Koereuteria pani- culata); the rare Seven-Son Flower Tree (Heptacodium miconioides); and most spectacularly, Angel’s Trumpet (Brugmansia spp.).   See separate entries for each of these and more.

The gardens are open to the public on a limited basis, as noted on CH&G’s website.
