Avenues and Lines of Trees
Alleys in Lusławice can be both sunlit and dark, straight and twisted. One of them is made up of more than 30 lindens that surround the manor drive. More mysterious in character is the hornbeam route leading south to Faustus Socinus’ mausoleum.
The alley formed by about a dozen American tulip trees in the lower park is unique in Poland. In the newer section, the avenue leading down to the grand maze attracts attention with its sheer scale.
It is formed of low yew hedges, impressive canna lilies, and spherical locusts planted in pairs. From the surrounding fields, the park is separated by lines of northern white cedars, white firs, and dawn redwoods.
In the furthest corner of the park, Penderecki planted alleys of 132 oaks to honour his granddaughter Mary. Before planting each of them, in accordance with an old Polish custom, the composer broke threescore eggs into the hole, so that the trees can grow sound.
