A Symphony of Beauty: Dale’s Garden Day and Night

A Symphony of Beauty: Dale’s Garden Day and Night

No matter the time of day, the beauty of this garden is unparalleled. Our return visit to Dale Coulter’s breathtaking garden in Sutton, Massachusetts (known as Dale’s Greenhouse and Garden) was nothing short of a delightful experience.

The garden boasts an exquisite greenhouse, constructed primarily from reclaimed materials, which serves both functional and aesthetic purposes, showcasing architectural art amidst the greenery.

However, it is during the nighttime that the greenhouse truly comes alive, revealing an even more enchanting sight!

Abundant with vibrant blossoms, this garden is a haven of flowers. Annuals planted in containers grace the foreground, while a wild and picturesque meadow of blooming perennials extends beyond. Everywhere you turn, a burst of color greets your eyes.

When darkness falls, carefully positioned garden lights accentuate the garden’s structures, completely transforming the ambiance and appearance of the space.

The presence of daylilies (Hemerocallis hybrids, Zones 4–9) in full bloom creates a magnificent spectacle. A small sign that reads “Flowers” accurately captures the essence of this garden, as it is undoubtedly one of the most flower-filled landscapes I have ever witnessed.

In the heart of one bed stands an incredible array of towering white lilies (Lilium sp., Zones 5–9), commanding attention with their sheer size. One can only imagine the intoxicating fragrance emanating from this splendid display.

Clusters of yellow Rudbeckia fulgida (Zones 3–9) are scattered throughout the meadow planting, imparting a sense of unity and adding to the profusion of flowers.

We would be delighted to explore your garden, learn about your cherished plant collection, or hear about a magnificent garden you’ve had the privilege of visiting!
