A lovely stream meanders across the Water Garden’s lawns down into the dell below.
The large number of water-loving plants that grow alongside the stream and ponds provide constant colour to this part of the garden. Plants here include the scarlet river lily (Hesperantha coccinea), various species of red-hot pokers (Kniphofia), hairbells (Dierama) and thatching reed (Elegia tectorum).
Enjoy refreshments at the nearby restaurant, which is situated in the shade of two magnificent white stinkwoods (Celtis africana).
