Notes:
Located on less than one acre, Native Nook is a young garden begun in 1996 and designed primarily as a teaching garden. The owner wishes to show that native plants can be successful in an urban landscape. Indigenous woodies which provide the background for perennial beds, an herb terrace, a garden house, and seating areas also provide winter interest in the perennial beds. Garden rooms have been loosely created to satisfy the owner's specific interests and desires. The perennial beds are arranged to create mystery, drawing the visitor along halls to the back gate.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Alexander McAlexander (former owner, 1925); Paul R. Smith (former owner, 1968 - 1975); Dr. and Mrs. Charles Grady Cannon (former owner, 1975 - 1995); Tara Armistead (landscape architect, 1995 - 1996); Steven Wells (landscape designer, 1995); B. C. Hudson (horticulturist, 1995 - 2000); and Roy Tamboldi (sculptor, 1996).
