Stonecrop Gardens was sun-drenched on Earth Day (April 22) and the botanists’ and plant lovers’ mecca just east of Cold Spring celebrated with tea in the garden and an Open Garden Sunday.
Now with 15 acres of gardens, Stonecrop was established by Anne and Frank Cabot in 1958 before opening to the public in 1992. Its diverse collection of plants includes woodland, water, grass and cliff rock gardens, enclosed English-style flower gardens, raised alpine stone beds, Alpine house, Pit House and conservatory.
It is located on Route 301, 2.7 miles east of Route 9 and open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday through October, as well as select Sundays. See stonecrop.org.
