Details: The garden is over forty years old and time has allowed the family to create mass displays of unusual bulbs, rarely seen in Australia, these make October a great time to visit. The Fritillaria meadow with over 5,500 nodding purple and white chequered flowers takes visitors breath away. Wonderful drifts of rare trilliums and Erythronium ensures a visit to remember. A large formal pottager produces an abundance of soft fruits, vegetables, edible flowers and herbs, which are used in the lodge dinning room. In late November to mid December masses of herbaceous  eonies are in flower, these are especially beautiful next to the Wisteria Pavilion that looks like a lovely white purfumed waterfall when in full bloom. The garden is renowned for its stunning collection of maples and each April it transforms into a vibrant kaleidoscope of reds, orange and gold that is truly breathtaking. Between the trunks of the mature maples a stream winds it's way through a carpet of cyclamen and drops into the woodland pond, which calmly reflects the vibrant colour of the trees. Whatever the season Kaydale Lodge Gardens is a must for the garden lover.
