Alittle more intimate and less formal than some other renowned gardens in our area, Chanticleer is “America’s most inspiring garden” according to Garden Design magazine. The London Financial Times described it as “planted to perfection.” So as not to distract from the visual effect, the 5,000+ plants throughout the gardens aren’t labeled, but guests are encouraged to talk with the gardeners to draw inspiration from the whimsical and imaginative displays. Whether it’s the tranquility of the Asian Woods, the imaginative beauty of the Ruin Garden or the lush fragrances of the Teacup Garden, it will quickly be evident why one reviewer called it “a pleasure garden that blows expectations away.”

Wildflower and Native Plant Gardens at the Brandywine River Museum of Art

Many of the paintings within the Brandywine River Museum of Art
— created by some of our nation’s most renowned artists
— were inspired by the landscape that surrounds the building. The Wildflower and Native Plant Gardens extend the art outdoors, while also preserving the artists’ natural muse. Wildflowers, trees and shrubs are carefully selected to provide a succession of bloom from early spring to frost and are planted in a setting similar to their natural habitat. Conservancy volunteers collect seed from the gardens that guests can purchase in the museum shop, allow- ing them to bring a little inspiration home to their own backyard gallery.
