Best Time to Visit Sherwood Gardens

After the Tulips

4100 Greenway, (410) 785-0444

Posted 9/20/2006

Sherwood Gardens' tulips get heaps of attention, and deservedly so, but hitting Guilford when the bulbs are peaking means competing with photographers crawling on all fours and toddlers dressed up like Vanderbilt offspring. But after the tulips shrivel away, along comes a barrage of wild flowers that lasts until the fall's first frost. It's then, when there's hardly a visitor, that Sherwood Gardens truly becomes an urban oasis. The fanciful landscaping might not have the cachet of 80,000 tulips gleaming in the spring sun, but the gardens offer a true break from the grind.
