Stonecrop (Cold Spring, New York)
This 40-acre site, featuring 6 acres of gardens and more of meadows and woodland, is located in the highlands east of the Hudson River. Developed bit by bit by its owners since 1958, its varied features include rock gardens, a conservatory and alpine house, ponds and water features, a metasequoia grove, and systematic order beds. Plants from the garden are offered for sale and although the garden is opened to the public on a limited basis, it is still a private sanctuary, a true plant lover's paradise.
The folder includes work sheets, photocopies of manuscript and published articles about the garden, garden plans, correspondence, and other information.
