Eight gardens at OpdeHaar

Each of the eight gardens at OpdeHaar has a very different character and a completely different type of planting. There is:

  1. The millennium garden started in the year 2000 and containing a large collection of hosta’s
  2. The summer borders are planted in the traditional English style, in lilac, blue and pink with some symmetry on each side.
  3. The unique rabatten bos with 18 drainage ditches, full with water in the winter, and dry in the summer. The rabatten are planted with a large variety of shade tolerant plants
  4. The recently created fern garden and stumpery with a large collection of ferns.
  5. The pond and rockery created in 1993 has a Japanese character and is an area of peace and tranquillity.
  6. The tropical border, with a variety of “exotic” plants, including a large banana, is an explosion at the end of the summer
  7. The rose garden with characteristic box hedges, still undamaged by box blight, surrounding the five rose beds
  8. The Fire and Ice garden with vivid red, orange and yellow flowers and grasses, black leaves and “ice” blocks, adds a flash of colour at the end of your visit.
