Rocky Hills, a beautiful thirteen-acre property and strolling garden in the northern suburbs of New York City, is the product of an old-world sense of stewardship and the patient artistry of Henriette Suhr over more than fifty years. The garden includes impressive plantings of rhododendrons, magnolias, tree peonies, perennial beds, spring bulbs, evergreens, and ferns; along with a hillside meadow, rock garden, and extensive woodland plantings on a rugged site with a brook running through the center.
We are saddened to report the sudden death of Mrs. Suhr on March 17, 2015. Her legacy lives on, however, in many ways, including through upcoming Rocky Hills events. The Garden Conservancy and the Friends of Rocky Hills presented a Rocky Hills Environmental Lecture on April 16 and will open the garden for the public to visit on a Garden Conservancy Open Day on Sunday, October 24.
