Stonecrop Gardens is located in Cold Spring, New York and was originally the home of Anne and Frank Cabot. Stonecrop became a public garden in 1992 under the direction of Caroline Burgess.

At its windswept elevation of 1,100 feet in the Hudson Highlands Stonecrop enjoys a Zone 5 climate. The display gardens cover an area of approximately 12 acres and comprise a diverse collection of gardens and plants including woodland and water gardens, a grass garden, raised alpine stone beds, cliff rock gardens, and an enclosed English-style flower garden. Additional features include a Conservatory, display Alpine House, Pit House with an extensive collection of choice dwarf bulbs, and systematic order beds representing over 50 plant families.

Stonecrop's plant collections and display gardens not only demonstrate what can be achieved by horticultural enthusiasts, but also serve as an educational resource which, together with its professional staff, constitute the foundation upon which is based a developing School of Practical Horticulture.

  • This garden is such a sweet little hidden gem. It doesn't take more than an hour to see the whole thing, and you get gorgeous perennial gardens, a trickling water fall, fields of horses and ponds full of turtles. Great for an add-on to a day of hiking in Fahnstock or at Breakneck Ridge.
  • Such a treat. I hope everyone who likes gardens gets there. There is a lovely surprise around every corner or Nature. The greenhouse​s are delightful n all for only $5
  • Stonecrop is a beautiful way to spend the day. Bring a picnic and good walking shoes. The yearly plant sale is also great.
  • So many different plants. Water features, stone and a gazebo. Awesome place and they sell plants too.
  • Amazing sights and landscape. A great place to take a family or to fall in love again.
