    Joanne Robichaud’s Garden, 27 Marble Road, Barnstable

    If you embrace the beauty inherent in imperfection, you will enjoy this garden. The owners built their home over 40 years ago and the gardens have evolved in both areas of bright sun and deep shade. Rock retaining walls provide structure to a difficult hill. A red maple offers a shady canopy for a serene palate of hostas while astilbes add contrast when their wispy stalks bloom. The bright, rich colors of the sun-loving plantings keep surprising as daylily, coneflower, phlox, daisy, hibiscus, and liatris burst with vivid combinations. Stands of heirloom hydrangeas have been augmented through the years with newer varieties in wonderful colors, shapes and sizes. ‘Glowing Embers’, ‘Tuff Stuff’, ‘Let’s Dance’ and ‘Bobo’ varieties are favorites with young ‘Pinky Winky’ trees and white flowering ‘Fairy Trail Bride’ cascading hydrangeas showing promise. Open for Tours: Wednesday, July 10 & Thursday, July 11. 

    Garden tours are $5 per person per garden. You can pay cash at each garden on the day of the garden tour. Each garden is open from 10 am to 4 pm only on the days specified. All garden tours are rain or shine and nonrefundable.
