Tudor Place Landscape Tour

Submitted by on July 22, 2013 – 8:54 amNo Comment

washingtondc_tudor-placeRoad Trips Gardeners can learn about the history and horticulture of centuries-old trees, heirloom plants and flowers and fragrant English boxwood on a guided walk across 5.5 acres and two centuries of landscape design at the Tudor Place Historic House and Garden, 1644 31st Street NW, Washington D.C. (map).

Upcoming tours will be held at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. August 6, September 3 and 24, October 1 and 22, 2013.

Learn how Tudor Place reflects both its Federal-period origins and changes in land use over time. See how orchards, vegetable gardens, stables and grazing land made way for lawns, rose gardens, fountains and the various garden “rooms” of an urban estate. Identify many varieties cultivated here over time, and see how four owners over six generations of one family cared for and embellished the landscape, while Georgetown and the Federal city grew around it.

Tour fee is $10. Advance registration is encouraged but not required.
