As Seen on Historic Hotels of America's website...

Monmouth is proud to have been featured in Historic Hotels of America's latest newsletter featuring historic gardens of some of the country's most historic and prestigious gardens. Here's the excerpt:

At Monmouth Plantation in Natchez, Miss., spring is alive with color, just in time for the annual Natchez Spring Pilgrimage. Master Gardener Larry Stewart, has planted more than 10,000 spring bulbs since mid-December. While the total number of bulbs on the property is unknown, Stewart puts the estimate at more than 50,000. His favorites are the Big Eartha 25" tall tulip, the French Blend 30" tall tulip, the Lent Lily daffodil (circa 1200's) and Hoop Petticoat daffodil (circa 1629), just to mention a few.
