General:
A 61-acre property is comprised of woodlands and numerous garden rooms, some with layouts that date back to the mid-19th century. The rock garden has remains of the original rocks and lilies of the valley. A fenced sunny garden behind one of many outbuildings is planted for color. A large kitchen garden has been subdivided but honors the original layout. Newer rooms are called the May Garden, Tropical Garden, Aster Border, Color Garden, Moonlight Garden, Jo's Memorial Garden, and Blue and Yellow Garden. Other early gardens rooms include a serpentine boxwood hedge planted in the 1920's and a circle garden on the approach to the house. Venerable trees include a massive juniper, oaks and redwoods, and the trees and varieties of shrubs complement the 1898 main house on a hill and the woodland garden. There are more than 20 named garden rooms or walks, ten historic outbuildings, and newer features that include cold frames, greenhouses, a lath house that provides shade, and deer fencing around 30 acres. The owners ran a small mail order nursery selling rare plants for about 10 years. In 1930 the Works Progress Administration (WPA) terraced the woodlands to control erosion. In 2001 Montrose was added to The National Register of Historic Places; that same year the owners deeded development rights for 50 acres to the North Carolina Triangle Land Conservancy and began planning a preservation project garden with the Garden Conservancy.

The Woodland Garden was started in 1985 on about 20 terraced acres planted with thousands of bulbs that included daffodils, trilliums, bloodroot, selaginella and wood hyacinths from the owner's mother's garden. Snowdrops proliferate along a walk and in the woods, followed by hellebores, rhododendron, Christmas orchids and cyclamen in August. Maple, beech, oak, sweet gum, hickory and walnut with understory dogwood and redbud provide shade and are filled with the sounds of birds. The informal woodland is the "soul" of the owner's garden. Other features throughout the gardens include a hand-made rustic trellis, antique urns and iron fencing, and large iron utilitarian farm pots that are planted with favorites from year to year.

Persons associated with the garden include: Kirkland (former owner, 1799- ); William A. and Susan Washington Graham and family members (former owners, 1842-1977); Thomas Paxton (landscape gardener, 1842)

General:
Copperheads sits on a 40 acre property in the town of Washington located in Duchess County, New York. The only evidence of a pre-existing garden was a lone Spirea atop the stone driveway wall and mauve peonies scattered throughout the site. The present owners adapted the old cow paths, building, and barn foundation into their garden.

The present garden began in 2001 when the Greek revival house was moved twelve feet during a major restoration project. The owners adapted sites utilized by the previous farmer owners, prompted by the 150-year old time capsule discovered inside a porch column during the renovation. On the foundation of what was once a storage barn, formal double perennial borders were constructed and enclosed by arborvitae hedges roughly following the outline of the barn. Stone steps lead down into the lower half of the garden, flanked by bronze mastiffs. In the center of the perennial garden is a lily pond. A secondary growth of trees was removed to open the view over the foothills of the Berkshires. To the north of the perennial garden, a pool backed by a Doric column pergola replaces the burnt remnants of an old cow barn. A fountain rests under the pergola smothered in Dutchman's pipe, a reference to the Dutch De Forest family that placed the time capsule in the house column. A cutting garden is located beyond the pool. To the west of the pergola on a steep slope, rubble from another building was uncovered. One side of the stone foundation remains functioning as a wall separating an upper path from a small pinery developed on the slope.

While constructing the house, a deep outhouse pit was uncovered revealing shards of Dutch clay pipes, clay storage jars, animal femurs, flower pots, and hand painted pottery. A boxwood parterre was planted on the outhouse site to be used as a vegetable garden. Before the gate is an iron arch topped with a copperhead snake to support a pair of weeping larch. Beside the carriage house is an apple orchard and fruit cage for growing blueberries. A stone pathway winds through a woods garden, complete with a wooden bench. The allee terminates at an urn and behind it grows a large Hydrangea.

In 2012, a teacup garden, called the "Pan Garden," was installed adjacent to the Daffodil Meadow to the right of the driveway. Boursault rhododendrons form a circle around a single Laburnum tree.

Persons associated with the garden include: William Losee (former owner, pre-1841); Isaac N. and Augusta A. De Forest (former owners, 1841-1856); Lawrence Barrow (former owner, 1856-1859); Robert F. and Caroline Johnson (former owners, 1859-1861); Rufus Fuller (former owner, 1861-1878); John Buckley (former owner, 1878-1917); Daniel Buckley (former owner, 1817-1923); Edgar V. Anderson (former owner, 1923-1945); Margaret Middleton (former owner, 1945-1948); Laurence J.

Scope and Contents:
19 slides (1975, 1985-1990, 1994), 8 digital images (reference) and 2 folders. Images 001-004 were taken by Faulkner (restricted by copyright). 001 is also in The Garden Club of America Collection.
General:
The five acre property on a steep hillside had been landscaped in the 1930's by Fletcher Steele who divided the upper portions near the house into horizontal terraces, including a lawn terrace for entertaining reached down a few stone steps, a veranda with a shaded loggia behind and to the side of the house, a wisteria covered pergola that disguised the service area, a sunken garden, and a lily pond with one side tucked into the rocky terrain. In 1967 Catherine Hull found shallow soil, a rock ledge and woodlands overgrown with invasive vines along with the strong lines of the hardscape. Most of that hardscape was retained but plans for an English style flower garden were scrapped and the gardener/owner studied and planted rock garden borders with alpines and woodland gardens with shade-loving perennials and shrubs. The retaining wall on the lawn terrace was dismantled and replaced with tufa, a porous volcanic rock, packed with peat and compost, then planted with gentian, alyssum, aquilegia, anemone, dianthus, papaver and other favorites creating a 50-foot long border. A second large bed was planted in the sunken terrace below a wall. Woodland canopies on the approach to the house and on the steep slope below were raised and lightened with under plantings of small bulbs including cyclamen and spring flowering trees and shrubs. Steele's lily pond was cleared of plants and rechristened as a reflecting pool for the plantings along the edges.

A statue of Neptune from the Steele garden remained and looked over the pond and nearby Massachusetts Bay. Around a key outcrop Hull planted mugho pine, juniper, cotoneaster and European ginger. The rock outcrops alongside the reflecting pool were planted with Japanese maples, petasites, hosta and primroses for spring bloom. There was a kitchen garden and composting facility with separate bins for horse and cow manure, seaweed mulch and oak leaves. While working on her gardens for 30 years Catherine Hull became an authority on alpine plant growing and propagation, lectured and belonged to many gardening societies including The American Rock Garden Society.

Persons associated with the garden include: Henry L. and Ida A. Higginson (former owners, -1896); Alice Weston Smith (d. 1903), Pauline W. Smith (former owners, 1896-1910); Anna Dwight Howard (former owner, 1910-1924); Caroline R. and William Hill (former owners, 1924-1931); Mary and William Kennard Kenly (former owners, 1933-1946); Katherine A. and Richard S. Russell (former owners, 1946-1967); Harry H. and Catherine Hull (former owners, 1967-2006); Fletcher Steele (1885-1971) (landscape architect, 1934-1939).

Scope and Contents:
47 digital images (2017-2018) and 1 file folder.
General:
Beginning in 1966 the owners worked with architect Walter Ramberg and landscape designer Kurt Bluemel to build a custom-designed modern house in woodland gardens on their seven acre portion of a larger family-owned estate. Once the site of a formal garden now their property has no straight lines with mature oak, maple and dogwood, 40 azaleas and boxwood from other family properties, and white pines planted to define the property line. Rhododendron from the formal garden were moved into the woods. Garden rooms on each side of the house, along the entrance driveway, outside the potting shed and around the swimming pool and fire pit have understory trees and shrubs, perennials, wildflowers or ephemerals partly shaded by mature trees. Japanese maples, bleeding heart, hellebores, and Virginia bluebells are some of the huge variety of plants in these partial shade garden rooms. Pathways and stairs are stone with custom iron hand-railing. There is a sunroom patch of lawn next to the house and lawn beyond the curving black-bottom swimming pool that leads to a tennis court. The fish pond, hexagonal potting shed and fire pit surrounded by a built-in circular bench were added over time along with whimsical metal sculptures including a blue tractor to celebrate a wedding anniversary.
Persons associated with the garden include: Morton Stewart and family (former owners, early 1900s- ); Clare and Van Stewart (owners, 1966- ); Walter Dodd Ramberg (architect, 1966-67); Kurt Bluemel (garden designer, 1967-1994).

General:
The first gardens at Las Palmas Altas were the creation of John Rhuart, who noticed similarities in the climates of Arizona and South Africa and brought to Arizona tropical and subtropical varieties he had seen growing in South African gardens. The three acre property on the warmer side of Camelback Mountain was undeveloped until Rhuart moved there circa 1960, building a ranch style house and a swimming pool with glass mosaics of fish on the bottom. Fencing and garden artifacts were brought from his family home in Phoenix as well as 36 mature Mexican fan palms, now 100 feet tall. Boulders from road construction up the mountain were brought to this property and used to build nearly fifty small irregular terraces connected by a descending path. A redwood Japanese teahouse was moved from Phoenix to Las Palmas Altas and sited near the swimming pool. Hedges of oleander and olive protected more sensitive jacaranda, seven species of orchid trees, and 100 bougainvillea plants comprising 67 different species. Brightly colored beds of tropical and subtropical African daisies, anemones, nasturtium and ranunculi were planted in terraces contrasting with plantings of cacti, yuccas, agave and other desert plants.
Since 2002 the current owners have been researching and partly reconstructing Las Palmas Altas, consulting Rhuart family archives and photographs as well as records at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden. It took six months to remove 30 tons of overgrown plants and brush but they uncovered rare saguaro seedlings, dragon trees, bougainvillea with 12-inch diameter trunks and enormous agaves. Desert natives, South American cacti and South African aloes are grown now with more modest plantings of colorful annuals. Modern irrigation has been installed where practical in some parts of the garden but hand-watering is still a daily, time-consuming task.
