Facility:McLaughlin Garden
Description:In 1936 Bernard McLaughlin began planting what would become one of Maine's most beloved gardens. A century-old Maine farmstead with massive stone walls and huge barn provided a unique background for his sophisticated collection of trees, woody shrubs, and perennials. Now the 2-acre garden is under the stewardship of a nonprofit organization formed to preserve the historic home, barn and garden for the public. The formal garden features mature collections of hostas, daylilies, astilbes, iris, phlox, sedum, cimicifuga, sempervivums, and over 200 lilacs beneath a canopy of mature deciduous and coniferous trees. A diverse collection of Maine wildflowers and ferns border an old lane which rises up a wooded hill behind the barn. Visitors can explore the historic house, barn, and gardens.
