Refresh yourself with the beauty and fragrance of thousands of plants, flowers, and millions of bulbs that provide a wide array of color, shape and texture for the 16 garden venues. The grounds include Japanese Gardens, the largest in the nation; Water Lily Gardens, the nation's largest display of 140 varieties in a natural environment; 20 million Daffodils; and Manor House Gardens with seven flowering terraces covering 150 feet change of elevation from the Manor House to the Valley Gardens.
