THE ORANGERIE

The Marjorie Doyle Rockwell Orangerie opened to the public on January 31, 1999 and is a hybrid of an 18th-century orangerie and a modern conservatory. The glass roof on the Orangerie admits a great deal of light, allowing non-hardy plants to be grown in the winter. This cool temperate house is filled with winter-blooming, fragrant, potted plants from October through May; as with the Limonaia, the plants are moved outdoors and incorporated into the gardens during the summer months. A Latin inscription on the Orangerie reads: “If there be heaven on earth, this is it, joy everlasting.”
