United States of America, New Jersey, Essex County, Millburn, Short Hills
Old Hollow Road (Short Hills, New Jersey)
Under continuous development by the same owners for more than 50 years, this garden was once a municipal sand quarry. Despite warnings from a local landscaper that the site was "impossible," the owners persevered. Beginning with azaleas, rhododendrons, and wildflowers, they moved on to include hostas, hellebores, daylilies, primula, and other perennials in their planting scheme. They continue to collect and plant experimentally on the site.
The folders include worksheets, photocopies of articles about the garden, a garden plan, a plant list, and other information.
