Gardens Next Winterthur  


Winterthur was the home of Henry Francis du Pont (1880-1969) who first opened his gardens to the public in 1951. Henry was a great-grandson of Eleuthère Irénée du Pont, founder of the Du Pont chemical company. Winterthur is located about six miles northwest of Wilmington, Delaware, on Delaware Route 52. These photos were taken on May 21, 2000, on a misty day. If I have not identified or mis-identified any of the plants in these photographs, please e-mail me with your suggestions.
