Rossanagh, Ashford, Co. Wicklow
The charming gardens surrounding this late 18 th century house were laid out towards the end of the 19th century with plantings of many fine specimens including Magnolia soulangeana ‘Alba’, Rhododendron arboreum and Camellia japonica. There are also mature specimen trees such as Luma apiculata planted c. 1880. On acquiring the property, the owners added a ‘White Garden’ in a sheltered area at the back of the house together with a wild meadow that reaches its peak in mid June, a great time to visit this splendid garden.
Described by Jane Powers as one of ‘Wicklow’s finest gardens’.
