My rating of three stars for Longwood Gardens was partially affected by the time of year (September). Aside from the Orchid room and a large display of cut Dahlias (from a competition?) in another area, there were almost no flowers in bloom. That, of course, is just nature and not the fault of Longwood Gardens. Their gardens and fountains are beautiful...without a doubt. However,... Longwood Gardens' admission is $28 per adult. That is a more palatable fee in springtime when their gardens are bursting with color and fragrance OR in December when every area of the grounds and building interiors appear to be decorated. But, in September, that fee is steep. Longwood Gardens is quite aware of what they are able to "display" at any particular time of year...maybe their admission prices could be set appropriately.

Beautiful, timeless and fortunate to have such a wonderful place only 40min away. Truly a gem and made it to my top 5 places to visit in Pennsylvania. There is something for everyone from the tree houses to the gardens, French inspired gardens, fountain to the spectacular green house and the dancing fountain show that emulated fire works... we will be visiting again.

About This Deal

According to the Epic of Gilgamesh, the eponymous hero became the first gardener when he captured the haughty princes of Rutabaga and encircled them with stacks of old farmer's almanacs. Visit an epic garden with today's deal: for $8, you get one adult admission to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, a $16 value. This Groupon is only valid for adult admission this August, so be sure to plan a visit no later than Tuesday, August 31.

The story of Longwood Gardens begins in 1906, when Pierre S. du Pont purchased the Peirce farm and arboretum. Pierre spent the next few decades developing the 1,050 acres into the horticulturist's wonderland that it is today. More than 11,000 types of plants await the eyes and noseholes throughout the 20 outdoor and 20 indoor gardens. Check out the yearly guide to see what's in bloom during your visit, and read up on the grounds to plot a luxuriously languid stroll. Longwood is renowned for its massive amount of fountains; check the schedule to make sure you see at least one of the shows. Admission to the Peirce-du Pont House is also included in the general admission, so architecture aficionados and shade lovers can meander through the 280-year-old edifice while learning more about the history of the house and gardens through its exhibits and knowledgeable ghosts.

This Groupon is not valid with any other offers or with specialty ticketed events.

About Longwood Gardens

Though Longwood Gardens owes its current incarnation to the tireless efforts of industrialist, philanthropist, and conservationist Pierre du Pont, the property’s history stretches back to precolonial days. The Peirce family purchased the land from William Penn himself in 1700, and by the end of the century the Quakers had already begun developing an arboretum on the premises. In the century that followed, the homestead was purchased by an ambitious 36-year-old du Pont in 1906. Throughout the next 30 years, du Pont built a legacy rife with extravagant European-style fountains, a picturesque 600-foot garden walk, and 40 indoor and outdoor gardens. Today, visitors experience a bit of du Pont’s passion for the tropical flora of the Americas during jaunts through the property’s 1,077 colorful acres, where they run into everything from flowering trees and delicate hybrids to carnivorous pitcher plants and an 86-acre Meadow Garden. In addition to cultivating lush flora, the garden’s stewards also encourage growing minds with an ever-changing roster of events, such as internationally acclaimed musical acts and immersive educational experiences.
