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.
On October 26, 2015, the Westchester Land Trust announced the transfer of the Rocky Hills conservation easement, protecting the property forever.
The next Rocky Hills Environmental Lecture, co-sponsored by the Garden Conservancy and the Westchester Land Trust, will feature environmental horticulturist Kim Eiermann and will be held on October 5, 2016, at the Chappaqua Library.
