Notes:
"This garden was designed and developed over a long period of time. It was designed for the pleasure of the blooming plants throughout the year. Light effects were studied during all hours of the day and beautiful shadow gardens were the result. One of the most interesting aspects of the garden is that it was developed as a series of small rooms. The gardens have outstanding collections of camellias and azaleas.
Persons associated with the property include: the late Barbara Rehder (designer); Charles F. Gillette (landscaper; supervised overall planting in the 1960's); Clarke (designer); K. Sawada (camellia consultant in the 1950's); Helen Pickney (researcher and photographer).
Summary:
The folder includes a sketch of the garden layout, plant list, and detailed description of the garden "rooms", as well as a worksheet compiled by GCA researcher Helen Pickney. The garden is noted for its series of garden rooms and its outstanding collection of camellias and azaleas.
