Du Pont Gardens of the Brandywine Valley
Celebrates the Du Pont family heritage of land stewardship and horticultural creativity
Renowned as the first family of American horticulture, the du Ponts created magnificent landscapes and gardens that complement the verdant, rolling lands of the Brandywine Valley. Five of their estates – Hagley, Nemours, Mt. Cuba, Winterthur, and Longwood Gardens – are open to the public, each a showplace of formal plantings juxtaposed with carefully nurtured natural woodland. Larry Lederman’s photographs capture the essence of these sites, moving through the seasons and through the day from dawn to dusk.
