Garden Tour at Virginia House

Location:
Virginia House
Part of the Garden Tours category.
Part of the program.

Join the staff for an in-depth look at more than eight acres of grand gardens at Virginia House. It took 20 years for Virginia Weddell, working with noted landscape architect Charles Gillette, to create the picturesque gardens. From formal spring tulip displays to the naturalistic plantings, the gardens and grounds of Virginia House provide a rich tapestry of texture and color throughout the year. Today, close to 1,000 types of ornamental plants thrive throughout formal gardens. This event is free for VHS members and $6 for nonmembers. Reservations required; please call 804.353.4251 or email Tracy Bryan.
