Five of them are from among the big-name public gardens -- Longwood, Winterthur and Nemours, for example.
And the others are little gems that don't get as much attention: Bartram's Gardens and River Farm, among them.
Choosing just 10 from among all the public gardens in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia is much like choosing your 10 favorite flowers. You are going to leave some real beauties off the list.
So, I invite readers to let me know what your favorite public garden is and a few lines describing what you like about it. I will post about them all here on Garden Variety. With pictures!
