Water lilies were blooming. Magnolia's were blooming and putting off their fragrance. July is not the best time of the year to go and see the many blooming flowers. It is a very peaceful place to walk and sit. Admission is free.

Follow the paved trails through this enchanted place and enjoy the loveliness at every turn. The specialty here is the cultivation of azaleas and rhododendrons, which are exquisite, but there are also many species of trees, and a large pond with water lilies. We took...More

This is a beautiful hillside woodland garden in Devon. There are numerous mature hardwood trees and interesting shade-loving understory plants. Huge jack-in-the-pulpits.

Great place! I visited Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens in spring and every flower was out of the bloom! Incredible pictures can be taken here while enjoying a small walk. Recomended for everyone :)

Beautiful woodland garden tucked in a neighborhood in Devon. Even though our visit was in the fall and not at the peak of the blooming season (spring seems to be best with rhododendrons, azaleas and wild flower) the setting is well thought out and allows...More

In season the rhododendrons and azaleas are gorgeous as are the plantings surrounding a large pond. Most plants and trees are clearly labeled. It has a very nice visitor center with well-maintained restrooms. They sell nice plants but they are pricey. The grounds are hilly...More
