A Tour of the Spectacular Azalea and Rhododendren Garden of
Bruce and Marianne Feller.
Bruce Feller gave a lecture to the HAH in January, 2013. His talk on "Three Seasons of Color: Fall, Winter and Spring" was so well received that he graciously offered our group a tour of his garden in Old Field, NY. Bruce has been involved in the American Rhododendron Society, NY chapter, for more than 20 years serving as board member, vice president and president. He has a showcase garden of these plants as well as a broad selection of other plants all of which are very well sited. He will personally give us a tour of this outstanding garden.
For the first stop in the morning we will visit the Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay. Planting Fields, the former estate of insurance magnate, William Robertson Coe, and Standard Oil heiress Mai Rogers Coe is one of the few remaining Gold Coast estates on Long Island's North Shore retaining the original 409 acres. Rolling lawns, formal gardens and sprcimen plantings as well as the Camellia Greenhouse and the Main Greenhouse with its unique seasonal display are included in this extraordinary garden.
Included in the tour will be a special lunch at a North Shore restaurant.
Cost: $100 per person including transportation, all admissions and lunch.
