Muni's Garden - Château de Vullierens

Muni’s Garden

Colour and symmetry are the hallmarks of Muñi’s Garden, which stretches for 1,200 square metres. Three gravel circles, eight metres in diameter, lead the way. At the centre of each stands a monumental sculpture, framed by beds of philadelphus (mock orange) and fuchsias against a backdrop of more than two thousand ivory white “Weisse Berliner” tulips. Along the pathway, guiding visitors’ steps, are more fuchsias and philadelphus.

Pale lavender catmint, delicate white “Belle Etoile” philadelphus, English dogwood and pink-flowered tree mallow bloom one after the other, filling the air with their sweet scent from the first days of summer. “Gracilis” and “Gracilis Alba” Magellan fuchsias welcome autumn with their scarlet, mauve and white petals. Along with “Annabelle” smooth hydrangeas and “Vanille Fraise” panicled hydrangeas, they brave the first frost.
