It is that time of year when all the flowers are in full bloom. Some of the HomeZada founders had an opportunity to visit two gardens in the Southern United States for southern gardens inspiration. First a visit to Bellingrath Gardens in Ocean Springs, AL. Walter and Bessie Bellingrath developed Bellingrath Gardens in 1927. With over 65 acres and well over 6,000 plants including camellias, azaleas, roses, and chrysanthemums, a visitor is sure to see some of the most spectacular gardens in this country. The rose garden is home to over 2,000 plants representing 75 varietals for southern gardens inspiration. You can learn more about these varieties here www.bellingrath.org/bellingrath-rose-garden.html The great lawn is bordered with a variety of plants, well over 4,000 annually to meet seasonal needs. The flower bed’s bordering the great lawn are over 400 feet long. A visit to the great lawn takes you back in time as if you would play croquet on such a lovely space.
