Summary:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 3,100 photographic images of private and public gardens throughout the United States, as well as some from foreign countries, dating from 1899 to 1963. Many of these images, generated for Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), were used to illustrate trade catalogs published by the firm as well as journal and newspaper articles. The collection also contains color records that were used as reference aids during the printing process, plant patents, and various publications of the McFarland Company.
Scope and Contents note:
The J. Horace McFarland Collection includes over 2,700 black and white mounted photographs, 448 glass lantern slides, and 41 glass plate negatives of gardens throughout the United States dating from 1899 to 1963. A small number of images show gardens in Austria, Canada, England, Mexico, Scotland and Wales. Many of the images, which were generated and used by the J. Horace McFarland Company to illustrate trade catalogs and journal and newspaper articles, indicate the publication(s) in which they appeared. A series of portraits of rosarians, many of them featured in Modern Roses 6, rounds out the image collection. The McFarland Collection also includes color records, plants patents, and miscellaneous publications. Color records are plant 'portraits' that were painted by McFarland Company staff artists in watercolor. They were referenced by the printing department in order to render illustrations of plants in colors as close to the originals as possible. The plant patents are patents for plants issued by the United States Patent Office. They include the plant name, source, filing and patent dates, patent number, and growth characteristics. Most are accompanied by a colored image of the plant identified in the patent. The miscellaneous publications are various pamphlets and booklets published by the J. Horace McFarland Company.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into 5 series:

1) Garden images (including mounted photographs, glass plate negatives, and glass lantern slides)

2) Portraits of Rosarians

3) Color Records

4) Plant Patents

5) Miscellaneous Publications
Biographical/Historical note:
Dr. J. Horace McFarland (1859-1948) was an influential civic leader, author, publisher, horticulturist, and authority on roses. His printing company, Mount Pleasant Press (later the J. Horace McFarland Company), was based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It published many of the seed and nursery trade catalogs in the United States during the first half of the twentieth century and was one of the first to apply color processes to commercial print applications. J. Horace McFarland Company staffers photographed thousands of different gardens and plant specimens throughout the United States. These images were used to illustrate numerous nursery and seed catalogs, journals and books. Among its many services, the firm sold various themed lectures illustrated by sets of hand-colored glass lantern slides.

McFarland wrote over 200 articles in popular journals as well as a dozen books on roses and gardening. He served as the first president of the American Civic Association from 1904-1924 and led several local and national campaigns to protect communities and scenic areas from urban blight and overdevelopment including the city of Harrisburg and Niagara Falls. McFarland, who served as the president of the American Rose Society (1930-1932) and helped establish a standardized rose identification and registration method, used the gardens on his own 2.5 acre property in Harrisburg, "Breeze Hill," to test hundreds of varieties of roses and plant cultivars. "Breeze Hill" was used as the backdrop for many photographs taken by McFarland's firm.

Scope and Contents note:
The folder includes a catalog sheet.
General note:
The two images consist of views of the park and the State Capitol. The Park, approved in 1854, became the country's first planned park financed with public money. The idea was developed through the efforts of Reverend Horace Bushnell. The park, however, was not built until six years later. Bushnell's neighbor and friend, Frederick Law Olmsted, was busy with Central Park in New York, but suggested Jacob Weidenmann as the landscape architect. Weidenmann's 1861 plan focused on informal gardens and walks using plant groupings to screen city buildings and industry. Architectural features, such as the Civil War Memorial Arch (1886), the Capitol (1876), Corning Fountain (1899), the Carousel (1974) and the Performance Pavilion (1995) were added. In the 1940's the Park River was buried and its bridges were demolished. A major transformation in the park occurred at this time when the firm of Olmsted and Olmsted of Brookline, Massachusettes was retained to assist the city in redesigning the Park.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Jacob Weidenmann (landscape architect, 1861); The Olmsted Firm (landscape architects); and Rev. Horace Bushnell (developer).

Kenarden (Bar Harbor, Maine)
Scope and Contents note:
The folders includes worksheets, historical information about the property, and a garden tour description.
General note:
The original gardens at Kenarden were designed by landscape architect Beatrix Jones Farrand (1872-1959) early in the last century and have been restored and replanted by the current owners. The gardens include a formal rose garden with boxwood edging that has a contemporary Lunaform urn at its center. The fomal sunken Italianate garden's balustrade and pergola were replicated by garden designer Dennis Bracale, and the flower beds were replanted. Urns created by Eric Ellis Soderholtz in the early 20th century are in situ in the Italianate garden as well as around the residence. Large cutting and vegetable gardens were installed in the same location as the historic gardens, alongside greenhouses. Many of the original outhouses remain on the property as well as mature specimens including a Japanese umbrella pine, a very large hawthorn tree, a mature gingko, and very mature pieris, kalmia and rhododendron. An iron fence surrounding the property was added with new perimeter plantings. The drive from the main entrance cuts through native woods that are maintained as a decorative feature.
Kenarden Lodge was one of the original summer properties built at the end of the 19th century in Mount Desert, Maine. The turreted mansion with its own electrical plant designed by New York architects Rowe and Baker in 1892 was torn down in the 1960s and another house was built in its place circa 1970 by the architectural firm Carroll, Grisdale & Van Alen. The first owner of the property was financier John Stewart Kennedy; the estate was sold in the 1930s to Ethel Mallinckrot Dorrance, widow of Dr. John Thompson Dorrance, a chemist at Campbell who invented condensed canned soups.
Encouraged by Beatrix Farrand, Eric Ellis Soderholtz switched from photography to manufacturing garden urns and other ornaments, some of which remain at Kenarden.
Persons associated with the garden include John Stewart Kennedy and members of the Kennedy family (former owners, 1892-1933); Ethel Mallinckrot Dorrance (former owner 1933-1958); Ethel Dorrance Colket (former owner 1958-1966); Rowe and Baker (architects of original house, 1892); Beatrix Jones Farrand (landscape architect, circa 1915); Carroll, Grisdale & Van Alen (architects of current house, 1970-1972; firm in business 1946-1973 ); AB & JR Hodgkins, Inc. (builders of current house, 1970-1972); Dennis Bracale, Gardens by Design (landscape designer).

Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet,plant list, and site plan.
General:
Established in 2003, and located on a busy intersection in the heart of Alamo Heights neighborhood, the garden is located on 1/3 acre. Mexican courtyards inspired the owners. Blooming plants serve to soften the adobe home's golden yellow color and sharp angles. To create a feeling of privacy from the intersection, the owners created a patio area directly in front of the home's entrance. Concrete benches designed by the owner frame the patio and serve to complete the feel of an outdoor room. Black Mexican lava rocks, large river rock, and antique bricks comprise the patio. The garden contains mostly drought-resistant, sun-tolerant plants and perennial beds. Several succulents such as Yucca aloifolia (Spanish Bayonet) and Yucca gloriosa (Spanish Dagger) provide a backdrop to beds of red Hamelia patens (Mexican Fire Bush) and yello Tecoma stans (Esperanza).
People associated with this property include: Dana Moessner (patio designer, 1996); and Alejandro Mendoza (gardener, 1996-2006).

This file contains 40 digital images and 1 folder.
General:
This 34 acre property, established in 1901, is defined by its stately white oak trees, expansive lawns, and textured beds that shelter a ranch style house. It was involved in the creation of three gardening and conservation groups: the Warrenton Garden Club in 1911, The Garden Club of America in 1913, and the Garden Club of Virgina in 1920. In 2010, the current owners hired C. Colston Burrell of Native Landscape Design to re-envision and expand upon the original gardens. A goal in the design of the gardens was to create season-long interest with color, form, and texture. The design employs both native and site adapted ornamentals, though native trees and shrubs provide the foundation for the gardens.
The original house at Marshfield burned down in 1942 and was replaced with a modest brick house. Remnants of the original foundation form the walls enclosing a pair of water gardens connected by a slender rill. Ferns, hellebores, Virginia bluebells, and thousands of bulbs flank the entry drive, sheltered by dogwoods, redbuds, and oaks. A rocky rill bordered by white azaleas spills down from a decorative waterfall to a shallow goldfish pond with iris and woodland plants. The old lawn now features a series of garden rooms. Adjacent to the house are the Winter Garden and Luna Garden. The Winter Garden includes hellebores and early bulbs, along with shrubs such as daphne and quince. The Luna Garden features intricate plantings, originally being designed in the shape of a crescent moon, and later expanded as a set of opposing arcs. Featured in this garden room are blue phlox, bicolored daffodils, and alliums in the spring. From the Luna Garden, you pass under a tall wood and metal archway festooned with flowering vines to stand at the head of a sweeping vegetable and cutting garden. At the end of this 200-foot vista, the axis ends with a 20 foot harvest table set on a wide bluestone terrace backed with a bosquet of columnar ginkgo trees underplanted with 500 blue camassia.
The 200-foot-long Boxwood Allee, parallel with the vegetable terraces, combines old American boxwood from the original garden with a collection of Japanese maple cultivars set in niches. Plantings of tulips, daffodils, Iphion, hostas, lilies, and elephant ears repeat the length of beds in blocks of color and texture. The Secret Garden contains a Celtic Stela, a stone monolith by Boston artist, Karin Stanley. A series of colorful meadow gardens, accessed down a curved hallway of fringe trees, anchors the central lawn. The meadows are planted with native and a few site-adapted wildflowers. The season begins with drifts of daffodils, overtopped by wildflowers and native grasses. A stately sycamore anchors the lawn below the house. The Druidic Circle features a grouping of teak root knots surrounded by aged boxwoods along with winter-flowering witch hazels. Off the back terrace, within a weathered stone foundation of the original house that burned down, lies a pair of water gardens connected by a narrow rill. Double cascades provide a pleasing sound that mitigates the noise from the busy country lane. Water cascades into the ponds through wide, stainless-steel waterfalls and exists to the rill in shallow spillways. The 15 acre bottomland along Great Run has been restored to a native meadow. Beebalm, ironweed, cardinal flower, and blazing-star bloom in summer, followed by asters, goldenrods and the dancing plumes of big bluestem and Indiangrass in autumn.
Persons associated with the garden include: C. Colston Burrell (designer, 2012-2015); Benito Hernandez (gardener, 2012-present); Dolores Mendoza (gardener, 2012-present).

Lowrey Garden (Greenville, South Carolina)
United States of America -- South Carolina -- Greenville County -- Greenville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a narrative garden description, site plans, and other information.
General:
The Lowrey Garden is lcoated a one-half acre lot in Greenville, South Carolina with horticultural specimen plantings of perennials, bulbs, shrubs and trees in garden rooms. The location in town on a busy street figures into the garden design which features Japanese maple trees and shrubs screening the open front yard of the 1949 house. The side and back garden rooms are bordered by pierced brick walls with plantings that bloom sequentially throughout the year. A sunny courtyard behind the house and a pond are set off by stonework walls. American boxwood hedges also define the separate garden rooms.
The garden has been developed by the present owners since 1993. Plants were chosen that suit the environment, such as zoysia grass, which will retain its green color year-round in the warm climate. In the spring flowering dogwood trees, azaleas, camellias, daffodils and bluebells are in bloom. For summer color there are hydrangeas, Oriental and day lilies, Ostrich ferns, Chinese fringe flower shrubs, and annuals planted in containers. The Japanese maple trees and various shrubs add color and texture in the colder months. The bulbs and shrubs in one corner of the garden have naturalized, with bluestone steps leading to a specimen Japanese maple tree.
Persons associated with the property include: Alice E. Howard (former owner, 1949-1980); Stephen and Kelsey Heiner (former owners, 1980-1982); John and Dianna Gilbert (former owners, 1983-1993).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, and landscape architecture plans.
General:
Located on a property that dates back to 1932, the Maclay Garden was established beginning in 1974 when the current owners purchased the property and began the work of transforming a garden that had been left to grow wild. Encouraged to design a garden that would be easy to maintain and offer year-round beauty, azaleas were chosen to feature prominently throughout the property, providing bright washes of color in spring and lush greenery throughout the year. Deep beds of evergreens and azaleas protect the property from its busy surroundings, both from the front of the house as well as framing the perimeter of the back garden. A walk along the side of the residence leads through a gated wall and shaded garden path to the main garden. The main garden features a large lawn framed by azaleas, a swimming pool, and two terraces offering garden seating and an outdoor dining area.
Entities associated with the garden include: King Burney Hughes (former owner, 1932-1934); the Praetorian family (former owners, 1935-1936); Mollie F. Hall (former owner, 1936); Mrs. Frances Hall McCracken (former owner, 1936-1974); William Pardoe & Associates (landscape design, date unknown); Mike Kirkpatrick (role and date unkown); and Lambert Landscape Company (landscape design, 1985).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and a copy of an original plan.
General:
A 28-foot drop within this one-third acre urban property, the installation of a swimming pool and fish pond water features, and the desire to preserve existing trees and shrubs were design challenges when the owners began restoration work in 1998. It took two years to complete the landscape comprised of three terraces down the hillside behind the house with connecting steps of Texas stone dug on site. The 1929 house with 1970's revisions is set back from public view but has views of the gardens from every room. Two magnolia trees planted in 1956 were preserved, and other trees and shrubs were tried out in the hot, dry climate and moved or replaced as necessary.
Grounds that were overgrown are now lush, with azaleas around the dining terrace that overlooks the pools and hostas, oak leaf hydrangeas, jasmine and caladiums in the shaded garden.The fish pond next to the swimming pool is shaded and has a small water garden. An iron fence at the front property line was replaced with a brick fence that is covered with ivy and planted with roses, salvia, hydrangeas and an ornate wrought iron bench facing the crushed stone courtyard. A large pergola on painted cedar trunks was built outside the bay windows at the back of the house. Native perennials have replaced annuals, drip irrigation conserves water, and the gardens are filled with aromas, pollinators, birds and the sounds from rustling trees and fountains.
The present house was built in 1929. Edward and Betty Marcus purchased the home from its original owners after moving to Texas in 1946 in order for Edward to take his brother Stanley's previous job as a general merchandise manager in the family owned business, Neiman Marcus. Landscape Architects Marie and Arthur Berger, who designed the grounds of the DeGolyer Estate at White Rock Lake and other residential projects, were likely consulted on the Marcus' garden during the 1940s and 1950s. The two Magnolia trees still preserved in the garden were planted on the grounds in 1956 in honor of the birth of Stanley Marcus' twin children.
Persons associated with the garden include: Roger and Pinta Harris (former owners, 1929-1946); Edward and Betty Marcus (former owners, 1946-1984); Jerrie Marcus Smith (former owner, 1984-1990); Dr. and Mrs. John Minna (former owners, 1990-1998); Henry Bowers (Hal) Thomson (1882-1974) (architect, 1929); Enslie O. (Bud) Oglesby, Jr. (architect, 1972).

General:
The two acre Hetz garden was established in 1970 in the midst of hundreds of acres owned by the owners' family business, a century old evergreen nursery. Inspired by Japanese gardens, the landscaping was designed to create a serene, contemplative environment. An extensive evergreen collection is accented with blooming specimen such as rhododendron, azaleas, magnolias, flowering crabapples and dogwood. A rectangular wisteria arbor reflects the lines of the long, linear contemporary home which overlooks a 5-acre pond. The arbor and perennial garden are situated on a rise above the house, the first features seen by visitors as they approach the home from a rounded curve at the end of a half-mile long driveway. The driveway features juniper planted along it's length to serve as a natural snow fence. The perennial garden includes plantings such as irises, daffodils, peonies, lupines, delphinium and lilies. Reminiscent of a Japanese garden, the landscaping near the residence includes boulders, dry stream beds, granite lanterns and bamboo plantings.
Persons and groups associated with the garden include: Fairview Evergreen Nurseries (former owners, 1954-1967); Thomas Corwin (former owner, to 1954); Arthur Lukens (architect, 1968); Charles Dahlkemper (landscaping, early 1970's); Dan Straub (landscape architect, mid 1980's); Dennis Ward (landscape designer, gardener, mid 1980's); Peter Russell (landscape designer, gardener, 1995-2000); John Bonanti (landscape designer, gardener, 2000-present).

General:
This property has been owned by members of the Grimshaw family since the Civil War and has been the site of a water-powered woolen mill, a cider mill, and a winery. The one-acre garden still has mature nut and locust trees planted by previous generations but their fruit trees and plants have been replaced by more than 200 varieties of rhododendron and azaleas and a hosta collection that thrive in the dappled shade. Ivy-draped ruins of industrial buildings remain as does the Craftsman-style family home that was built in stages using wood from the property. In 2015 the current owners purchased the adjacent hill, four acres of vineyards and a winery that were part of the original holding. The tailrace of the old mill has become a bog garden planted with marsh marigold, yellow flag iris, Joe Pye weed, primula and ligularia. Wildflowers border the banks of the creek that runs through the property.
In 1845 a water-powered wool mill was built and business thrived until the mill burned down in 1883. A water-powered cider mill was built on the same location, and due to the proliferation of local concord grape vineyards the business turned to making wine by 1906. Production was halted by Prohibition in 1919 when federal agents were said to have dumped 50,000 gallons of wine into the creek.
Persons associated with the garden include Benjamin and Sarah Grimshaw (former owners, 1864-1873); William and Jane Grimshaw (former owners, 1873-1911); Robert and Beulah Grimshaw (former owners, 1911-1976).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles.
General:
Three previously vacant city lots comprise this one-third acre urban farm and nursery garden focused on growing organically, providing a community gathering place, and teaching about sustainable land use. Ecologically sound practices are their main feature. The farm keeps bees for pollination and chickens for their eggs and to provide manure for the compost. Garden structures are fabricated from found or re-used objects and discarded building materials, such as PVC pipes that are too old to be used for their intended purpose but can serve as hoops for floating row covers. The business is recognized for its ingenuity, craftiness and thrift, as well as for creating a green space in a struggling neighborhood. They grow 100 varieties of tomatoes including heirlooms, dozens of sweet and hot peppers, many kinds of eggplants, greens and herbs. Flowers that are grown may be edible or are attractive to pollinating bees and other beneficial insects, including sunflowers, alyssum, coneflowers and native asters.
Since the urban lots contained detritus from demolished buildings and other debris, they had to be excavated, leaving craters that were filled with leaf mulch courtesy of the local public works agency. The organic matter decomposed into the degraded soil creating an excellent growing medium. Subsequent testing showed that the produce grown there was not contaminated and safe.
Persons associated with the garden include: Allegheny City vacant property program (former owners, 1996); Mindy J. Schwartz and Barbara K. Nicholas (former owners, 1996); Hannah Reiff (production manager, 2010- ); Robert Madden (outreach manager, 2008- ).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles, photocopies of historic photographs, and histories of the property and architecture.
General:
Poplar Hill is a six-acre property with simplified plantings that accommodate a busy professional lifestyle in a deer-prone area, and renovations that have brought back design features from earlier gardens. The property is entered through a long curving drive under mature trees that leads to the colonial revival house with Georgian features built in the 1950s. The upper garden to the west of the house, measuring about 40 by 56 feet and oriented east to west is planted in turf grass bordered by shaped evergreen shrubs with gravel paths. Green lattice panels supported by tall brick piers enclose the upper garden. A broad flagstone swath with two steps leads to the lower garden, a 70 by 136 feet rectangle with rounded ends that is oriented north to south. A five-foot tall brick wall surrounds the lower garden with a summer house built into the wall that has white Tuscan columns reiterating those on the house. Inside the wall there is an informally planted double border of perennials, ornamental grasses and shrubs bisected by a gravel path; the rest of the lower garden is turf grass. Asian stone statues have been placed in the niches at each end of the lower garden and other statues and an antique English wellhead dot the property.
Modern additions to the garden's design include a brick patio, formal side garden and greenhouse southeast of the house. Two argyle parterres of deer resistant boxwood and barberry were planted at the main entrance to the house. A fenced cutting and vegetable garden was placed near where one existed in the past. A horseshoe-shaped yew hedge believed to be from the original landscape design was refurbished with mature shrubs where there were gaps. At one time a reflecting pool bordered in ivy and daphne was a feature in the garden; it was grassed over long ago but the current owners had stones placed outlining the old pool's shape. There are no poplar trees remaining at Poplar Hill and no plans to replant any.
The first house on the 41 acre property known as Poplar Hill was a colonial revival mansion with 35 rooms overlooking the Allegheny Country Club. The first landscape designer of the gardens was Arthur Shurtleff (Shurcliff) but no records or drawings of his design have been located. In the 1930s Poplar Hill had formal gardens with parterre beds of brightly colored bulbs and annuals, an enclosed rose garden, and a border containing one hundred named varieties of iris. The property was subdivided into parcels and most features of the earlier gardens were destroyed.
Persons associated with the garden include Martha Fleming Byers (former owner, 1904-1913); John Denniston Lyon and Maude Byers Lyon (former owners, 1913-1930); Reverend Dr. Maitland Alexander (former owner, 1931-1940); Madelaine Francis Laughlin Alexander (former owner, 1931-1952); William R. Jackson and Lucilla Scribner Jackson (former owners, 1952-1984); Walter E. Gregg, Jr. (former owner, 1984-1991); Mr. Wilson Wyatt (former owner, 1991-1993); Philip Hiss and H. Hobart Weeks (architects of original house, no longer standing, 1904); Arthur Asahel Shurtleff (later Shurcliff), ASLA (likely landscape architect of original garden, 1914); E. Burnet (landscape designer, dates unknown); Frederick DePeyster Townsend and Bryant Fleming (landscape architects, dates unknown); John Nelson Franklin and Herbert C. Douden & Associates (architects of current house, 1953); Jöel C. LeGall, ASLA (landscape consultant, 1994-present); Kutchko Nursery, Inc. (gardeners, 2005-present).

General:
The foursquare house on this ¾-acre property was built circa 1908 by the U.S. Army corps of engineers to be used by one of two lockmasters, preferably with large families, employed to maintain busy locks 24/7 on the Allegheny River. The federal government provided some landscaping in the 1930's and 1940's, and there is photographic evidence of a vegetable garden. There were mature white pine, catalpa, river birch, ash and silver maple and stands of invasive Japanese knotweed when the current owners began developing gardens in 2001. The entrance garden behind a nine-foot tall wooden fence was built first, with an arched wooden bridge over a bubbling waterfall and fish pond with koi, shaded by two river birches, a dwarf Japanese maple, oakleaf hydrangea, azaleas, and an understory of Solomon's seal, Japanese painted fern, hellebores and hosta. The shabby chic garden is more formal with intersecting boxwood hedges edging beds of flowering shrubs, roses, bulbs and perennials. The focal point is a two-level cement fountain set in another koi pond with a nearby statue of St. Francis of Assisi. A collection of stone statues of Buddha and a hot tub, with shade perennials and a view of the Allegheny River comprise the Buddha bed. The dam wall garden features an arbor created from fallen branches, stone steps descending 20 feet with ground cover, ferns and daylilies planted on the hillside, a fire pit on the riverbank but no vegetation on the dredged river sand and gravel.
On the main level there is a swimming pool inside a pool house/greenhouse with a retractable roof. Its shady garden has ferns, liriope, spotted dead nettle, ornamental grasses, heuchera, hosta, Joe Pye weed, a meandering stream and another pond with koi and ducks. The pool house walk has a wisteria-covered pergola and birdhouses. The gathering garden has a meditation hut cantilevered over the riverbank with plantings of hydrangea, mountain laurel, hosta, hellebores, astilbe, bellflowers, Japanese anemone and blueberry bushes shaded by white pine. The sunny farm or potager is comprised of raised beds separated by gravel walkways planted with perennial flowers, herbs, vegetables and rhubarb from grandmother's garden. Additional outbuildings include a chicken house with chickens free to roam, a duck house and a shed with solar panels that provide electricity for these buildings.
Choderwood is located between a defunct short line railroad and the Allegheny River, an urban oasis in a formerly industrial location, and is a certified wildlife habitat. The owners have participated in garden tours and host events as well as lodgers on two riverboats.
