Ladew Topiary Gardens

Named One of the Top 5 Gardens
in North America

The extraordinary topiary gardens designed and developed by
Harvey S. Ladew (1887-1976) are known throughout the world. 

The 22 acres of delightful gardens include more than 100 larger-than-life topiary forms which serve as backbone and centerpiece to a series of garden rooms with names  such as the Rose Garden, White Garden, Yellow Garden, Garden of Eden, Sculpture Garden and Iris Garden. The life sized Hunt Scene of topiary horses, riders, hounds and a fox is one of the most famous of Ladew’s creations.

Equestrian and fox hunting memorabilia, fine art and English antiques fill the circa 1747 Manor House. Ladew’s unique Oval Library appears in the book 100 Most Beautiful Rooms in America.

Guests enjoy House tours, strolls through the Gardens and Nature Walk, Gift Shop and historical display.
