THE GARDENIA

OSCAR'S GARDENS



A GARDEN IS PROBABLY THE MOST PURE AND SPIRITUAL OF JOYS—A COMMUNION WITH NATURE AND BEAUTY IN THEIR MOST SIMPLE AND FUNDAMENTAL FORMS. IT IS AN 
EXPERIENCE THAT NEEDS TO BE LIVED AT EVERY INSTANT. IN A GARDEN, ONE CANNOT REFLECT ON SOMETHING BAD. WHAT IS TRULY WONDERFUL IS THAT IT TEACHES 
YOU A LESSON ABOUT LIFE’S CONTINUITY. IN A SENSE, A GARDEN IS A FRAGILE VISION THAT CAN QUICKLY DISAPPEAR OUT OF NEGLECT, BUT WITH CONSTANT WORK 
AND TENDER LOVE, IT CAN PRESERVE BEAUTY FOREVER. – OSCAR DE LA RENTA


OSCAR DE LA RENTA KEPT EXTRAORDINARY GARDENS THROUGHOUT HIS LIFETIME AT HIS HOMES IN CONNECTICUT AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. THERE WERE MAZES 

OF BOXWOOD AND YEW HEDGES, LUSH ROOMS OF CLIMBING ROSES, HYDRANGEAS, AND TOPIARIES, A PARADISE OF ORCHIDS, YLANG-YLANG, TUBEROSE AND, HIS 

FAVORITE, GARDENIAS. HIS PASSION WAS REFLECTED IN THE FLORAL AND BOTANICAL PRINTS THAT REMAIN A SIGNATURE OF THE HOUSE TO THIS DAY.






YOU HAVE TO APPRECIATE EVERY SINGLE DAY THAT YOU’RE ALIVE. LIFE IS A LITTLE BIT LIKE A GARDEN — YOU HAVE TO FIND TIME TO PLANT THE SEEDS FOR 
BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS TO GROW. – OSCAR DE LA RENTA





GARDENING IS THE WORK OF A LIFETIME: YOU NEVER FINISH. – OSCAR DE LA RENTA
