Cedar Garden/The Grove
Walking back toward the Museum visitors pass through the Cedar Garden, so named for the blue Atlas and deodar cedar trees planted to the right of the path. The honeybush is striking for its long, bare limbs, with bursts of silvery green leaves near its top. The third and final of Maillol’s great bronze sculptures—Air—seems to float above a sea of purple. Indeed, notice the abundance of ‘Goodwin Creek Grey’ lavender, pride of Madeira, grape hyacinth and New Zealand flax planted here. Barbara Hepworth’s Rock Form (Porthcurno) lies beyond, and nearby you’ll find Henry Moore’s Upright Motive #5 and Upright Motive #8. Cape Rush bog plants grow thick and tall near the pond’s edge, and a grove of lovely tulip trees, which bloom in the springtime, lead to the Garden Café. Some of the plants in this area include evergreen clematis, several varieties of narcissus, star jasmine, coral bells and Iris 'Frequent Flyer'.
