In Our Gardens
Sunny weather and blue skies still feel like the holidays as Fearrington begins to decorate for the season. Over the next few days, the Fearrington garden staff and florists will set up, light and decorate more than a dozen trees throughout the Village Center.
One of the first (and largest!) to go up is the Center Island tree, which will be covered with our handmade decorations to feed the birds. Specially decorated trees will be placed throughout the Village shops and restaurants, along... Full Post >
Long after foliage and flowers have succumbed to the cold, winter-berrying plants fill our gardens with excitement and beauty. The mild, temperate climate of the Carolina Piedmont provides ideal growing conditions for a wide variety of trees and shrubs bearing winter fruit -- many of them native!
Here at Fearrington, the gardeners have incorporated numerous types of winter-berrying plants into beds throughout the Village. We love them for their individual beauty and design possibilites, as... Full Post >
With flower beds all tidied and plenty of rain on hand, the Fearrington Gardeners recently took a field trip up the road to visit our friends at the North Carolina Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill. A morning spent oohing and aahing over the lush plantings there - exemplified by this spectacular pitcher plant display - has only piqued our interest in the diversity and beauty of native North Carolina wildflowers. This is the perfect time of year to visit the NCBG! Check out their Facebook page for... Full Post >
One of our favorite things about late summer in the Gardens here at Fearrington is to see the endlessly fascinating combinations of leaf and flower emerge. Colors intensify in the August light, and all the various forms of plants begin to weave together magically! A few combinations that have really caught our eye are Coreopsis 'Moonbeam', Canna 'Bengal Tiger' and 'Color Guard' Yucca at the entrance to The Fearrington Granary, Full Post >
Fearrington's gardens are filled with vibrant colors, leaf textures and plants of all shapes and sizes! Tucked away in one of our Inn courtyards, there is a pink lily that stands above the rest -- at over five feet tall!
This lilium speciosum rubrum was planted nearly five years and and hit its stride this year, sprouting up to peek above the courtyard fence. Keep an eye out for the pink blooms across from the Fitch Creations Administration Building. Full Post >
At McIntyre's Books, In Our Gardens, The Fearrington House Inn
As excited as we are to see visitors at Fearrington out strolling the gardens, we also truly love to have them enjoy the peaceful beauty of Fearrington by just sitting and relaxing in a garden! With that in mind, we have created several new areas in the Village for our guests to unwind. Nearly everyone is familiar with the iconic white Adirondacks in front of The Fearrington House, but now there are two spots in the nearby shade of the Garden Terrace to discover!
Other locations include just... Full Post >
Fearrington Weddings, In Our Gardens
Anyone who has attended a Fearrington wedding, stayed overnight at the Inn, or dined at The Fearrington House has undoubtedly been wowed by the floral artistry of Mary Stevens and her talented team. While having the ability to choose from among the best in bloom the world has to offer each week, the Fearrington designers have another asset -- special beds of cutting plants created just for them by Gardener Donna Mears! With one located behind the Flower Shop, and another behind Roost, the... Full Post >
Starting in late June, and continuing all through the summer, the various species of Rain Lilies have begun their show in the Gardens at Fearrington. Whether Zephyranthes, Habranthes, or Cooperii, the rain lilies are all bulbous plants and part of the Amaryllis family. Tough, drought tolerant, and deer-proof, these beauties come in colors ranging from white to yellow, to brightest pink -- such as this clump located across from McIntyre's Books front entrance. The Gardeners have been adding... Full Post >
One of our favorite plants here in the Gardens at Fearrington is the beautiful Oakleaf Hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia). Unlike it's better-known cousins, the mopheads and lacecaps, this large, somewhat coarse textured shrub sets it's blooms on new growth, and thus avoided the damage wrought by last winter's Polar Vortex. True four season interest plants, Oakleaf Hydrangeas have lovely exfoliating bark, large, rough leaves, which turn a fabulous russet before dropping in the fall, and creamy... Full Post >
Recently, the Fearrington Gardeners (accompanied by Mr. Greg Fitch) were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of NC's own Zoo in Asheboro. We were awed by the fine work done by Zoo horticulturists, who are responsible for research, propagation, and display of a vast collection of native and exotic plants! One of the highlights: a visit to the Zoo's amazing compost pile. Fellow gardeners will understand our excitement in learning the workings of Zoo composting!! Full Post >
