The water lilies and reflections in a pond at Duke Gardens almost create a Monet-like image
In the summer, the fish pool at Duke Gardens is filled with hardy and tropical water lilies. One of the highlights is the Victoria water lily, with leaves up to 7 feet wide. In the pool, goldfish and koi are popular with visitors.
The Sarah P. Duke Gardens in Durham, North Carolina consist of approximately 55 acres of landscaped and wooded areas at Duke University. There are 5 miles of walks and pathways throughout the gardens. More than 400,000 visitors from all over the world visit Sarah P. Duke Gardens annually. Will be posting some images from the gardens this week.
Topped by a wisteria-covered pergola, the Terrace beds are filled each season with marvelous combinations of bulbs, annuals, perennials, ornamental grasses, trees and shrubs. Container plantings complement the landscape designs.
