General:
The brick house was designed in 1914-1915 by architects Delano & Aldrich with a brick walled garden. Marian Coffin designed the perennial border. The grounds were designed to complement the house which was fashioned in the style of the English Arts and Crafts movement. The walled garden is a formal terraced garden situated near the house. Beyond the walled garden is a more naturalized, wooded area featuring a pond on the lower lying grounds.
Current owners of the property have undertaken a restoration of the property to reflect the original Delano and Aldrich design. The property has since received recognition from the New Haven Preservation Trust, the Connecticut chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
This garden was originally documented in 2005, at that time it was identified as the Home of Edith H. Ilmanen. An update of the garden documentation was provided in 2012, as the Elizabeth R. Hooker House.

United States of America -- Delaware -- New Castle County -- Greenville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, a brochure, site plans, plant lists, photocopies of correspondence and articles about the garden, and other information.
General:
Mt. Cuba was the private estate garden of Lammot du Pont Copeland and Pamela C. Copeland. The 630 acres that now comprise the property were acquired beginning in 1935. Development of the gardens began soon after, with some early design work by Thomas W. Sears (initial tree planting and formal areas around the house) and Marian Cruger Coffin (the south terrace and round garden). More importantly, Pamela Copeland's interest in preserving indigenous plants led to Mt. Cuba's becoming a center for the preservation and study of Piedmont flora. More than 1,800 taxa are represented in the collection. Various habitat areas, such as woodlands, fields, and a series of ponds, highlight native plants. Of particular note is the largest cultivated display of wildflowers in the Mid-Atlantic region. Other features of the garden include a lilac path, the Coffin-designed round garden with its seasonal plantings, a cutting garden, and a rock garden. Today, Mt. Cuba Center is a non-profit institution committed to promoting an appreciation for plants native to the Piedmont, encouraging their use in gardens and supporting their conservation in nature.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Lammot du Pont Copeland (former owner, 1935-1983); Pamela C. Copeland (1935-2001); Thomas W. Sears (landscape architect, 1930s); Marian Cruger Coffin (landscape architect, 1949-early 1950s); Seth Kelsey (landscape architect, 1960s); William H. Frederick, Jr. (landscape architect, 1970s); Richard W. Lighty (garden director, 1983-1998); and Victorine & Samuel Homsey, Inc. (architects, 1935-1937).
