Garden Tour to Benefit Cape Cod Challenger Club: Julie's Secret Beech
- Dates: July 8, 2023
- Location: West Barnstable
- Time: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
The backbone of this garden was established in the 1950's by the arborist for the Colgate family and features many mature specimen trees, highlighting a near centennial European copper beech, surrounded by an acre of sweetgum, dogwood, magnolia, espalier fruit, Japanese bell flower and a variety of unique evergreens. Meandering brick paths and rock walls circle through newer additions of hydrangeas, over 100 cultivars of hosta, hybrid daylily and native hellebores. Eclectic and somewhat whimsical, the Secret beech invites one to wander through multiple garden rooms, past statues, trellises and water features. Garden Accessibility: Discretionary, uneven land, set of stairs, soft ground.
The proceeds from the garden tour will benefit the Cape Cod Challenger Club. Admission: $5. Rain or Shine.
