Our Plants

  • Paperbark Maple

    Trees with ornamental bark can add texture and color to the winter garden.  This paperbark maple has beautiful exfoliating, cinnamon colored bark, which is a garden highlight any time of year.
  • Japanese Camellia

    Japanese camellias have glossy evergreen leaves and rose-like flowers in various shades of pink, red, and white that bloom at Longwood throughout the winter.  These beautiful flowering shrubs were one of Pierre S. du Pont’s favorite flowers and one of the first species planted in the Conservatory upon its completion in 1921.
