    Garden#1 Linda Coven’s Garden - 121 Camp St, Unit 106, West Yarmouth
    Strictly Hydrangeas!!! This unusual and surprisingly expansive garden encompasses two adjacent very hydrangea-centric properties.  It has continued to evolve since it was first showcased in 2016 and now boasts 500 hydrangea cultivars in various settings throughout both Linda’s yard and that of her next-door neighbors. Garden beds flank both homes and a backyard stockade fence. There are also several island beds, a rather large kidney shaped berm, and a secret garden.  Twenty-five containers are planted with hydrangeas and perennials using the ‘Pot-n-Pot’ method and many companion evergreen shrubs, perennials, and exquisite pieces of garden art also grace this very special site. A ‘Pot-n-Pot’ container gardening with hydrangeas demo will be held at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm each day.
    Open for Tours:
    Saturday, July 6 & Sunday, July 7.


    Garden #2 Rick Murray’s Garden - 72 Keveney Lane, Cummaquid
    This 1.2-acre property features a stunning planting of 100 H. arborescens ‘Annabelle’ along its 150’ north border. A variety of other hydrangeas including H. macrophylla, H. quercifolia, H. paniculata, and H. serrata lines the southern border. A 60’ berm in front of the property contains more than 50 varieties of hosta, fern and other shade-loving plants.  A granite staircase and stone walkway from the driveway to the front entrance of the house is planted with dwarf conifers, creeping juniper, Japanese maples, a weeping Atlas cedar, a larch, various ground covers and other specimen plants. The back of the property is a park-like setting which features wind sculptures by Lyman Whitaker, whose work is represented in galleries throughout the U.S. and abroad. Open for Tours: Saturday, July 6 & Sunday, July 7.
