Photography is a wonderful way to remember your visit at Crystal Hermitage Gardens. For your own enjoyment, visitors are welcome to take photographs and videos during their visit. Handheld cameras and camera phones are welcome.

Photography must be conducted without disruption to Crystal Hermitage operations or limitation to the accessibility of other guests, including doorways, bathrooms, pathways, and high traffic areas.

Crystal Hermitage reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to withhold and/or withdraw permissions to photograph or videotape on its premises, if it is a disruption and/or is perceived that it might endanger garden beds, garden objects, or other visitors.

Please do not bring photography equipment such as tripods, reflectors or lights to the garden.

Please do not change costumes, clothing in bathrooms or in public.

Please do not leave large bags unattended in the garden path, benches or garden beds.


    1. Yes you can visit in May. If Mother Nature allows it. There might be tulips. If not, the peonies and wisteria are beautiful in the lush green garden.

    1. Richard,

      No tulips yet. The tulips haven’t sprouted yet. April is when they will start to bloom.

  1. I was wanting to know if the Tulips would be available for Mothers Day. My nephew is willing to take family photos of us (7), three adults and 4 children ages (13, 10, 8 & 7).
    We are a non drinking, non smoking respectful group who would love to use your gardens for photos. We understand we will be competing with others, but we are patient and love the flowers and your grounds.

    If the Tulips are gone by May 6th will there be summer flowers planted and what varieties? The westeria will still be there and the gazebo correct?
    The. Ire alone is breathtaking and exillersting, so I’m sure wevvan make this work, with your permission of course. Thank you 😊 Mary

    1. Dear Mary,

      The tulips will last until this weekend. Please observe our guidelines: no tripods only handheld cameras and iphones. Also changes of clothing are difficult because there is no place for you to store your personal belongings and these items usually end up in the garden path ways. Please do not block the pathways. Please arrive a little before the doors open at 9:45am to avoid the crowds.

      By the way, the wisteria is perfect by the gazebo and your photographs will be perfect.
