Every other year, the Birmingham Botanical Gardens hosts the Glorious Gardens Tour. This year is the year! You won't want to miss it!
One of our favorites on this year's tour, the Clark garden in Vestavia, exhibits this homeowner¹s fondness for formality and function. Magnolias,
hollies, hydrangeas, fruit trees and other traditional southern garden plants are the bones of the Clark garden. The front garden features Knock Out® roses, gardenias, and a wildflower garden overlooking a gorgeous view of the valley.
In the back, there are formal gardens and a pool. Behind a massive hedge of Leyland cypress at the rear of the property, the Clarks have an extensive daylily collection. Raised beds hold tomatoes, herbs, cut flowers, and bearded iris. Scroll down for a slideshow tour.
This year, there are six private gardens on the tour. Click here for the complete schedule and tickets.
