Froggy Bottom (Bainbridge Island, Washington)
This 1 1/2 acre garden is intensely planted with a mixture of exotic and native plants in an informal style within a definite structure characterized by various axes and vistas throughout the garden. The planting style relies more on foliage colors and shapes than on flowers. Large-leafed plants are used throughout the garden in contrast to grasses and bamboos.
Persons associated with the garden include: Bart Berg (landscape architect, 1994-1995); Little & Lewis (concrete sculptures); Georgia Gerber (lioness sculpture); and Earle Blevins (garden gate).
