Dugdale Garden (Greenville, Delaware)
A perennial flower border that is more than 100 feet long is the colorful features of the Dugdale Garden on a 4-1/2 acre country estate. There is a low dry stone wall behind this border and many trees and shrubs that provide color, shade and texture to other areas of the property. The flower border, known as "Summer in Bloom" starts at a water lily and fish pond next to the house and traverses to the swimming pool enclosure which is also filled with perennial flower beds. The owner's favorite colors, yellow, orange and purple predominate in the plant selections.
