Chanticleer's Asian Woods. Photo from "What's in Bloom" on their website.
The Asian Woods at Chanticleer, the magical pleasure garden in Wayne, PA, is another inspiration for the Wild Garden I am developing. The Asian Woods is the most collection-oriented garden at Chanticleer. The woodland has unusual plants native to Korea, Japan, and China in a setting that tries to emulate an American woodland garden. The winding paths with unique paving materials lead the visitor to special seating areas with distinctive benches that add to the atmosphere. Best of all, there is an comprehensive plant list on line that is an excellent resource for the dedicated plants-person.
