The Pinède, in William Christie's words:
"This pine grove, or boschetto, is a nod towards Italy. Its components are quite simple: a collection of umbrella pines and cypresses. In spring this quiet, restful space blooms spectacularly with thousands of white narcissi and white tulips."
The Pine Grove with music
The Pine Grove to the rythm of the seasons
Here in spring there are pools of white Narcissus ‘Mount Hood’ and Narcissus ‘Thalia’ which are followed by the the tulip ‘White Triumphator’. The shrub rose that grows in the beds along the nut walk is Rosa ‘Bonica’, a modern hybrid that flowers for several months.
