9. Hamilton’s Sketch Inspired the Circular Garden

Circular garden around Hamilton Grange

The garden, which Hamilton wished to be 18 feet in diameter, sits in front of the home. Although Hamilton wanted the garden to have nine tulips, nine lilies, nine hyacinths, and nine of another flower that his gardener could choose, many more flowers exist in the current garden.

As Hamilton wished, there are now lilies and hyacinths that blossom each spring and various types of daffodils. In addition to the circular garden, visitors can find Viola Sororia, Winter Camellia, and Virginia Bluebells in the East Front Garden, West Front Garden, and Pathway Gardens. As visitors enjoy the gardens, they can find up to 40 types of tulips.
