Chanticleer Gardens

I just returned from my summer vacation--it was really taking my daughters to and back to college.  While in the Philadelphia vicinity (we stayed in Glenmoore at "The Rutherford", we visited Chanticleer, a most beautiful public garden, in St. Davids, PA.  They had a wonderful Asian woods section, and a pond with the largest flowered lotus I have ever seen.  I was let in for free as I am a "Gardening professional" and I was given some baby sycamores which were coming up as weeds in the bog garden.  They had a mass planting of sorgham which was quite ornamental.   They used yellow foliage plants very well there- some people, in my opinion, over use plants with interesting colored foliage.
