Notes:
The Hollies is an approximately one acre garden in Dallas, Texas, established in 1999, one year after the house was built. The front courtyard is planted with high holly hedges around a circular driveway. Low boxwood hedges are planted on either side of the entrance and rose trees are planted at either side in front of the house. Two paths lead to a symmetrical garden at the back of the house. At the center of the garden is a long and rectangular pool and a summer house is at its far end. Rectangular perennial garden beds were designed so that they run parallel to the pool. A large garden room located on the left-hand side of the central garden is planted with two rose beds of many varieties. The garden is planted with irises, lilies, foxglove, delphinium, dahlias, cleome, salvias and daylilies. Trees on the property include a large American elm, a Chitalpa tree, pear trees, red bud trees, magnolias, a cottonwood tree and red oak trees.
Persons associated with the property include: Overton Shelmire (architect, 1998), David McCarthy (landscaper, 1999) and John Morelock (Texas flora expert, 1999).
