Maryborough, “Stirling” 14 North Street

Open Saturday 29 August 2020

The garden at Stirling dates back more than a hundred and forty years. The oldest surviving specimen is a giant, gnarled frangipani, which provides welcome shade in the hottest months.  More recent plantings include a gardenia hedge, roses, camellias, agapanthas and plenty of annuals to ensure year round colour.

There are five arbours in the garden; three covered with the prolifically flowering petrea volubilus, one with a climbing pink rose, and one with the delicate Pierre de Ronsard rose.

One of the newest additions to the garden is a young jacaranda tree – destined to be the shade and colour of Stirling’s future.
