anna wintour’s wild garden

Anna Wintour's Wild GardenA tour of Anna Wintour’s 40 acre garden at her Long Island home (term used loosely) was released this week by T Magazine. It is every bit as breathtaking as one might expect. Miranda Brooks, the designer, and has made this property, “the base, the backbone, of her American gardens.” Brooks’ first commission was for a rooftop garden in NYC for Wintour’s then husband. The famed landscape designers signature is on the edge of wild – almost haphazard – but this twenty year project has been lovingly tended and carefully considered.

Both Wintour and Brooks grew up in England and  love the open countryside. his sweeping garden features, Tuscany Superb roses, peonies, allium, baptisia, artemisia and Buxton’s Blue geranium, Pheasant’s Eye narcissus, and many more . The sheer amount of green space and the mounded boxwood that form walls are my favorite parts of the garden.Anna Wintour's Wild Garden
