The Eudora Welty House Garden

Readers of Eudora Welty's fiction know that she was an avid and knowledgeable gardener: the names of flowers and plants—wild and domestic—abound in her fiction.

The garden of the Welty House, created by her mother, Chestina, and tended by Eudora for years, has been carefully restored to its former and highest glory, the period of 1925-1945. The garden features an extensive perennial border and rose garden, reconstructed trellises and latticework, a woodland garden, and camellia collection. The Welty House garden is an approved display garden of the American Daffodil Society, as well as a stop on the American Camellia Society's Gulf Coast Camellia Trail.
