It’s Longwood Gardens week at the GPOD! This week, we’ve been celebrating this fabulous public garden in pictures. Longwood, located in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, is a long-time FG staff favorite, an infinite source of inspiration, gardening know-how, and of course, great photos.

Day 5: Longwood Gardens’ 7-acre Peirce’s Woods, in early July. Cardinal flower (Lobelia cardinalis) and great lobelia (Lobelia siphilitica) bloom along a stream under pond-cypress trees (Taxodium distichum var. imbricarium ‘Prairie Sentinel’). The cardinal flower is the first to begin flowering scarlet red, followed by the clear blue Great Lobelia.
