Wildflower and Native Plant Gardens at the Brandywine River Museum of Art

October 2020

Many of the paintings within the Brandywine River Museum of Art—created by some of our nation’s most renowned artists—was inspired by the landscape that surrounds the building. The Wildflower and Native Plant Gardens extend the art outdoors, while also preserving the artists’ natural muse. Wildflowers, trees, and shrubs are carefully selected to provide a succession of bloom from early spring to frost and are planted in a setting similar to their natural habitat. Conservancy volunteers collect seed from the gardens that guests can purchase in the museum shop, allowing them to bring a little inspiration home to their own backyard gallery.

The Brandywine River Museum of Art and its surrounding property are following guidelines set by the CDC and WHO.  Please be respectful of others during this public health emergency. Photo credit: VISIT PHILADELPHIA®
