Rose Weekend at Lyndhurst Mansion

June 9 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Join Lyndhurst Mansion on June 8th and 9th from 10 am to 3 pm to experience the blooming Rose Garden and to spend some time in the fresh air! Certain garden-centric events, experiences, and lectures are available for free however registration is required.

During the weekend, local plein air painters have been invited to interpret our inspirational landscape. They will be located throughout the property!

Visit the interactive area of local gardening experts on hand to offer practical advice. Whether you’re a novice gardener or an experienced green thumb, join like-minded community members in sharing a passion for plants. Learn how to support pollinators, which natives best suit your site, how to kickstart compost, and which flowers make the best backyard-to-table bouquets. Lyndhurst’s Green Scene experts can answer questions and exchange information about everything from garden design to sustainable landscaping practices. Participants include Ardsley Pollinator Pathway, Hudson Compost Co., Seeds of Design garden columnist/designer Shoba Vanchiswar, Seed-on-Hudson flower farmer Katie Tolson, and Lyndhurst’s landscape curator. Rain Plan for Ask the Experts: Carriage House Tent.

Mock cocktails from Apero Vespa and ice cream from Penny Lick will be available as refreshments!

Helen Gould roses will be for sale in the Courtyard:

Historically, this pink Tea rose is a sister to the “Helen Gould” rose, the mention of which can be traced to early 20th-century gardening catalogs and magazines. The “Helen Gould” rose, described as “watermelon” colored and popular in its time, was later renamed “Red Maman Cochet.” Of the five Maman Cochet sister roses (pink, yellow, crimson, white, and red) only the white and pink varieties exist today. During her time at Lyndhurst, Helen Gould’s rose garden was full of pink rose blooms. Enjoy yours!

Mansion Tour and Rose Afternoon Tea

The Rose Afternoon Tea will be offered on Saturday, June 8, and Sunday, June 9, from 1 pm to 3 pm, in the Blue Cottage, where guests will enjoy a shortened tour of the Mansion’s culinary spaces and then experience a Cream Tea with a selection of teas and treats. This event is presented by Bridget Bray, who will share the origins, traditions, and etiquette of the long-favored British afternoon tea service and include several tea blends from her Puddings and Biscakes tea line, now available in the Lyndhurst Mansion store. This tea experience will begin at the Welcome Center walk up to the historic mansion and take a brief tour, where the group will be the first to experience the newly created display of the chinaware from Lyndhurst’s collection. The group will then walk to the Blue Cottage for the sit-down tea. These tickets are separate from the car admission, please purchase them below!
