Event Details

Situated around Bonne Esperance Boutique Guest house, an elegant Victorian Villa dating back to 1907, the Aspidistra and Bonne Esperance Garden is a sublime mixture of loose plantings and structured elegance.

The Garden is essentially English in style with a strong focus on heritage plants that includes a magnolia tree, rose pergola and an buxus border intertwined with indigenous plants. It also boasts a ‘Cécile Brünner’ rose bush older than 100 years. This fact was confirmed by the granddaughter of the original owner, Mr Triblehorn. The garden features an impressive azalea hedge, and also includes many old-fashioned roses. Willie Schmidt, the Pasella garden guru, is the curator and he has planted and nurtured the garden with his characteristic flair.

Visitors can sit on the wrap around veranda and enjoy tea and scones whilst overlooking the lovely garden. We invite you to be transported back into history with a visit to our heritage garden.
