Patio of Oranges

The Patio of Oranges is situated in the state-of-the-art East Conservatory.

Originally constructed in 1928, the area was reimagined and recreated in 2005 to incorporate a Moorish, French, and Modernist inspired design that is distinctly unique to Longwood. Flowering trees and fragrant shrubs abound, creating a park-like setting. Permanent plantings of Mediterranean and sub-tropical flora complement large-scale displays of seasonal blooming plants. Large hedges create intimate areas for quiet contemplation, while plants chosen for color, texture and fragrance invite exploration. The space is set into motion by a gently flowing stream and waterfall.
