With their ten hectares in a large coastal area in the area of Ardea, forty kilometres south of Rome, the Landriana Gardens are truly a romantic spot reserving many a pleasant surprise.
The gardens, first landscaped by Russell Page, were enlarged and altered throughout the years with the introduction of a number of plants, among which heather, hydrangeas, old roses and camellias.
A distinguishing feature of the garden is its division into thirty 'rooms', among which surely worth mentioning are the rose garden, in which a myriad sweetly scented roses grow in flower-beds bordered with lavander, thyme and clove pinks; the orange garden, one of the 'formal gardens' of the Landriana; the olive garden; the white avenue, an extremely long stairway flanked with large white flower-beds; the blue lawn, with its mostly blue plants; the Spanish pond, hidden among the camphor trees.
Every single garden is endowed with a seasonal charm of its own: narcissuses, tulips, cherry-blossom, magnolias and roses in spring; Plumbago, Datura, Passiflora and Hibiscus in summer; camellias in autumn; the formal gardens with their carefully trimmed hedges instead maintain their charm unaltered throughout the year.
In April and in October the Landriana gardens host a garden show where one can find a number of unusual or rare plants.
