About this Outdoor Garden

Enjoy intricate planting patterns in this sunken Garden filled with an ever-changing selection of spring bulbs and summer annuals.

Our gardeners take advantage of the elevated view to create elaborate beds surrounding a sparkling water feature, which runs from 9:00 am-5:00 pm daily, and until dusk on Friday and Saturday evenings, mid-April through mid-October.

This quiet reflection pool was one of Pierre S. du Pont’s earliest fountains, built in 1908. The fountain jet was later added.
