General:
The garden at Villa Filipponi is a tapestry of tropical trees, shrubs, ground cover plants, cacti and succulents with orchids mounted on tree trunks and planted in containers. The main garden has a large center lawn surrounded by borders containing fruit and ornamental trees, many varieties of palm trees, succulents and cacti grown in containers, and tropical perennials as the understory. A shaded brick path leads around the garden and to the house and outbuildings which include an orchid house. The garden is located several blocks from the ocean which protects it from winds and salt spray but hurricanes, especially Wilma in 2005, have been destructive and the garden has had to be reconstructed. The variety of shrubs, tropical perennials, trees, bromeliads and cacti and succulents planted by the owner and her horticulturalist is extensive.
The Mediterranean Revival style house was designed by Palm Beach architect Marion Syms Wyeth in 1925 and designated a Palm Beach landmark in 2001. The original lots were one-quarter acre but a previous owner bought the adjacent property and demolished that house, providing the site for the main garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Count and Countess Carlo Filipponi (former owners, 1925- ); Mrs. Granville Morse (former owner); Mr. and Mrs. Thomas McKnight (former owners, 1988-1997); Marion Sims Wyeth (architect, 1925); Smith Architectural Group, Inc. (architects, 1990); Mario Niveria (ASLA) (landscape architect, 1998); Janna Mullan (horticulturist, 2013- ).
