From formal displays in the Four Season's garden to the naturalistic plantings in the bog garden, the gardens and grounds of Virginia House provide a rich tapestry of texture and color throughout the year. It took 20 years for Virginia Weddell, working with noted landscape architect Charles Gillette, to create the eight acres of picturesque gardens at Virginia House. Today, close to 1,000 types of ornamental plants thrive throughout formal and naturalistic gardens. Extensive English and American boxwood plantings lend structure and create a sense of both mystery and tranquility. Hollies, southern magnolia, and red cedar frame in distant views.
