The Jane K. Platt Garden (Portland, Oregon)
The house was built on the site of an old apple orchard. "There are two and a half acres of sweeping lawns surrounded by beds containing many rare plants, trees and shrubs...The garden is primarily Ms. Platt's design. Emphasis is on a succession of bloom and color throughout the year. Alpines from all over the world are included." (The Garden Club of America Annual Dinner Medal Award Program, 1984)
Persons associated with the property include: Pietro Bulluschi (architect, 1938); Richard Painter (landscape designer, 1958-1962).
