AUGUST: Jim Gibbs favorite month in the Gardens
In case you’re wondering why August is so special:
Peak bloom time – Blossoms reach their prime with peak flowering in August.
Multitudes of flower combinations – There are so many different plants in bloom, you’ll see combinations of roses and crape myrtles, annuals and perennials flowering together everywhere you look.
Escape the heat – Cool off in the Gardens. With a constant 62 degree ambient temperature, our spring-fed streams and ponds are nature’s air conditioning as they flow through the Gardens.
Treat yourself to a Gibbs Gardens “daycation” – Sit in the shade on one of our 126 benches, listen to gurgling brooks and birds singing. Get away from your busy routine to the tranquility of Gibbs Gardens.
Check out Tour The Gardens for many more photos of Gibbs Gardens 16 garden venues.

Seven flowering terraces frame the Manor House
From the Flower Bridge to Manor House Gardens’ seven terraces,

Crape Myrtle and Roses crown the Valley Gardens
Crape myrtle—the famous allées— and roses proudly march across the ridges,
displaying their bright banners in shades of pinks, reds, white, lavender, and yellow.
More than 1,000 roses and 500 crape myrtles bloom throughout Gibbs Gardens in August.
