Place:
Pleasant Hill (Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
United States of America -- Iowa -- Linn County -- Cedar Rapids
Scope and Contents:
The folders include a worksheet, a garden plan, a detailed narrative description of the property and garden, a plant list, geological survey, copies of articles on Grant Wood, and photocopies of articles about the garden.
General:
The gardens at Pleasant Hill were inspired by the early architecture of the area and the designs of regionalist painter, Grant Wood. The residence was constructed in 1932 to reflect the architectural history of Iowa, using original structral elements from other houses and antique furniture. On December 20, 1989, the home was designated as a National Historic Site. At the entrance to the garden, Grant Wood designed a grape arbor. Stones from a quarry near Stone City, Iowa and a grist mill stone were incorporated into garden seats. The owner chose species of flowers and trees that are either indigenous to the zone or have proven successful through the harsh Iowa winters, producing a continuous show of color in summer, spring, and fall.
Persons and firms associated with the property and garden include: Bruce McKay (architect, designer, builder, 1932-?); Grant Wood (artist, 1933); and Mrs. E. W. Spence (landscape architect).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Nau's Green Valley (Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
United States of America -- Iowa -- Linn -- Cedar Rapids
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and a photocopy of an article.
General:
Located on nine acres, six of the acres are densely forested with mature hardwood trees and the remaining three acres are the footprint for the gardens. The gardens were initiated after the house was built in 1984 beginning with foundation plantings of evergreens, deciduous shrubs and herbaceous perennials. Deer predation was a serious problem and an ornamental iron fence was installed around the garden in 2005. The owners do all the work themselves and keep adding borders and garden beds, reducing the size of the lawn. There are more than one hundred varieties of conifers, 40 to 50 varieties of hosta (one 8 foot hosta was named 2004 hosta of the year by the American Hosta Association), and in total more than one thousand different cultivars in the gardens including common and rare varieties. In addition to ornamental plantings there is a small pond with a water garden, a small vegetable garden, a chicken coop and a large conservatory. Thousands of annuals are propagated in the conservatory and planted out in the spring to follow the flowering of hundreds of bulbs. The chickens provide eggs and manure that is composted and used throughout the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include) Roger Hadley (architect, 1984) .

United States of America -- Iowa -- Linn -- Cedar Rapids
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of articles and historic photographs.
General:
The Greek Revival house had an interesting history, having been cut in half and moved from its original location to this one and one-third acre hillside lot in 1929. The gardens, lawn and trees installed by previous owners had been neglected by the time the current owners took possession in 1997. Clearing the weeds from a semi-shaded circular bed uncovered the original hosta and peony garden planted by the Armstrong family circa 1930. The owners added limestone edging and a large iron urn as a focal point, along with spring blooming daffodils, trillium, bleeding heart, blue bells, pulmonaria, and allium, which are followed by astilbe, wild ginger, hydrangea, and turtlehead (chelone) in summer. Flower beds are more casually planted with heirloom varieties of hollyhock, foxglove, feverfew, peony, iris and sweet William, mostly in shades of pink, purple and white. A boxwood hedge planted years before provided seedlings for other hedges that complement the formal style of the house. Shaped boxwood, boxwood in containers and trimmed hedges or limestone walls define garden rooms.
The sunny backyard was redesigned in 2003, adding a limestone retaining wall to divide it into two levels with a fountain on the upper level. A small part of a glass conservatory that was about to be demolished was acquired and attached to the garage, and is used in spring for starting heirloom vegetables and flowers, then used for dining in summer when the trees have leafed out and shaded the room. Winding paths connect a formal herb garden with an antique finial as its focal point, three raised vegetable beds next to the house, the greenhouse, a rose arbor at the entrance to the backyard, and sun and shade perennial and biennial garden beds. Antique containers and ornaments as well as a bench found at a flea market that may have sat outside this house nearly a century ago relate the gardens to the late Victorian style of the house.
Persons associated with the garden include Samuel G. and Anna Cooper Armstrong (former owners, 1903-1929); Anna Cooper Armstrong (former owner, 1929-1948); Frank B. and Margaret Armstrong Race (former owners, 1948-1986); Walter J. and Maureen K. Hale (former owners, 1986-1993); Robert and Joni Hilton (former owners, 1993-1997); Charles A. Dieman (1873-1937) and Ferdinand C. Fiske (1856-1930) (architects, 1903); Theodore Stark & Sons (builder, 1903); E.W. LaPlant (house mover, 1929); Mondanero Concrete (landscaping, 2003); Larry Lorenz (construction, 2008); Chalupsky Nursery (landscaping, 2002, 2014); Mitch Odell (garden assistant, 2010-2012); Stanley Wrobel (construction and garden assistant, 2013-2015).

South Amana -- Cottage-in-the-Meadow Gardens

Provenance:
Cedar Rapids Garden Club  Search this
Collection Creator:
Garden Club of America  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Cottage-in-the-Meadow Gardens (South Amana, Iowa)
United States of America -- Iowa -- Iowa County -- South Amana
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a work sheet, garden plans, a detailed narrative history and description of the garden, and photo copies of articles.
General:
There are at least ten distinct gardens on this ¾ acre property, originally part of the Amana colonies of Iowa, now owned by descendants of one of the families from the Community of True Inspiration. Members of the religious community emigrated from Germany in the 1800's, bringing with them seeds for some vegetable varieties that are still being grown here. Their brick house was built in 1900 and has a distinctive style of trellises originally used to support grapevines since the community grew only consumable fruits and vegetables, not ornamentals. A cottage on this property built in 1850 was used as a daycare center for the children; now it is a toolshed with a cottage garden enclosed by an authentic reproduction of an earlier picket fence. The property is in a valley with rich, fertile soil, skillfully tended by the owners who maintain a one hundred year old asparagus bed, an ivy garden grown from a cutting in her bridal bouquet, and trees as well as hedges of flowering shrubs grown from cuttings. An enormous vegetable garden produces fresh food, food that is preserved for the rest of the year, and seeds for their heirloom vegetable seed bank. More than 300 different varieties of plants are grown including perennials, bulbs, ornamental grasses, flowering vines, and foliage container plants arranged for texture and color impact. Three scallop-shaped flower beds that feature red salvia and mixed borders are edged with rocks collected on vacations by a previous generation of owners. A small lath outbuilding is nearly smothered in fall by sweet autumn clematis. Another flower garden grows on the site of an earlier chicken house. Among the fruit and nut trees in a small orchard there is an apple tree grown from a culture from a tree planted by Johnny Appleseed.
There is a division of labor in this garden: she grows the vegetables and passes along recipes while he grows ornamentals. He is also a historian who contributes garden-related postings to websites, on topics ranging from how to add a gnome feature, the virtues of growing fritillaries (deer avoid it), and successful groupings of ornamentals with similar horticultural requirements. His book, "Gardening the Amana Way," was published by the University of Iowa Press in 2013.
