"Creating Pathways in the Garden".
The Silver garden has been the collaborative effort of husband and wife team, John and Donna Silver. The expansive garden extends over eight acres and includes a large selection of plants. Nestled in amongst the evergreen trees and native shrubs commonly found in coastal gardens, you will find a display of over four hundred rhododendrons as well as Japanese maples, magnolias, dogwoods and a large collection of rare and unusual evergreens. Bloom is at its best during the early spring when the Pieris japonica, magnolias, early crocus and daffodils are flowering in the garden. From mid April to early August there are various rhododendrons ranging from yellow, white, red and an array of pinks. The strong backbone of the garden is evident with its ponds, bridges, arbors and pathways.
