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:
- The millennium garden started in the year 2000 and containing a large collection of hosta’s
- The summer borders are planted in the traditional English style, in lilac, blue and pink with some symmetry on each side.
- 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
- The recently created fern garden and stumpery with a large collection of ferns.
- The pond and rockery created in 1993 has a Japanese character and is an area of peace and tranquillity.
- The tropical border, with a variety of “exotic” plants, including a large banana, is an explosion at the end of the summer
- The rose garden with characteristic box hedges, still undamaged by box blight, surrounding the five rose beds
- 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.
