The Eugenia Leftwich Palmer Fern Dell
Roughly 10 degrees cooler than the rest of Dallas due to the shade and misters, the Palmer Fern dell features more than 90 varieties of ferns, camellias, azaleas and mature trees that border the peaceful brook winding through this enchanting mini-garden.
Cool Off in the Mist
The heat of summer and late spring creates beautiful moments to sit in the cool, misty shade while enjoying a view of Jonsson Color Garden and the crape myrtles that surround it.
Guests relax on benches here, take photos of the beautiful moving water, wander the shady paths and hunt for beautiful pieces of art tucked throughout.
The Palmer Fern Dell, designed by Naud Burnett II, is located within the Jonsson Color Garden. This tranquil spot is a welcome oasis during the summer months due to the micro-fine mist system that regularly envelops the garden.
The Fern Dell is relatively close to the Terrace Cafe near the entrance.
A “Cool” Experience
The micro-fine mist system that runs every few minutes in the warmer months creates an amazingly “cool” experience.
