About this Outdoor Garden

This 600-foot-long avenue features 27 historic bald-cypresses fronted by an arborvitae hedge that provides a stately backdrop for an ever-changing double flower border.

Plantings are redesigned throughout the seasons, leading to a new experience with each visit. 

Garden Highlights

History of this Garden

The bald-cypresses on the north side of the drive were planted by the Peirces in the 19th century and augmented with replacements by Pierre S. du Pont. In 1947, he planted all of the trees along the south side of the drive.
