New Jersey State Botanical Gardens at Skylands

Ringwood, NJ

“The John Russell Pope-designed Tudor mansion is only outdone by the beautiful gardens.”

“I’m obsessed with the history of NJ’s state Botanical Garden and mansion. The Tudor Revival house holds ancient wood paneling, mantel pieces and stained glass windows stripped from important homes in Europe."

Notes from the website:
From the delicate shades of a tiny wildflower to the vibrant colors of massed annual plantings, Skylands is a place of beauty in any season. Here you can wander amid the elegance of formal gardens, or along gentle paths winding through the woods. New Jersey Botanical Gardens includes 96 acres of specialty gardens surrounded by 1000 acres of woodlands. You're invited to wander and explore the miles of marked trails. Skylands is also a safe haven for unusual plant species from around the world. The garden protects and preserves these plants as their natural habitats are changed forever by progress.
