Place:
Elverhøj (Poulsbo, Washington)
United States of America -- Washington -- Kitsap County -- Poulsbo
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, and copies of articles about the garden and the Brauers.
General:
Established in 1980, this ca. 2.5 acre garden lies on a peninsula jutting into Liberty Bay, an arm of Puget Sound. The site was originally homesteaded in 1889. The garden is informal and incorporates as many different species of trees and shrubs as possible, including many dwarf trees. Several large grassy areas include a meadow that is cut two times a year. Above the beach is a long, winding perennial garden that is gradually evolving into a shade garden. Because many of the trees and shrubs are grown from seeds or cutting from friends of the owner or exchanges, the feeling of the garden is changing all the time; it may even eventually evolve into a mixed forest. Challenges with which the owners have had to contend in developing the garden include brush, junk left from previous uses, soil consisting of heavy blue clay and fine glacial silt, and a constant struggle to maintain the view of the sound and the Olympic Mountains. Raised planting areas, a variety of plants resulting in year-round bloom, and the use of evergreen ground covers and dwarf shrubs in many different hues and textures have led to a result that respects and builds on the natural setting, yet incorporates such highlights as water features and a bonsai collection.
Persons associated with the garden include: Uno Noll Brauer and Sara Elizabeth Peterson Brauer and family (former owners, 1889-1975); John Fluke (former owner, 1975-1979); Daniel Robinson (landscape contractor, 1982-1983); Dick Yamasaki (landscape designer, 1980-1981); and Denise Kelly (gardener, 1983 to date).

Elisabeth C. Miller Botanical Garden.
General:
Located on a four-acre site purchased in 1948, this garden is situated on a bluff edging the Puget sound within view of the Olympic Mountain Range. The property descends two hundred feet from woodland to an open arid area at the top of the bluff. The garden was developed in 1950 as a collector's garden. In 1977, it held over 5,000 different species endemic to thirty-five countries from the arctic to subtropical region. Of interest are the ericaceae and evergreen oak collections and heavy use of Northwest native plantings. In 1994 the Elisabeth Carey Miller Trust was established to preserve and continue the Miller Garden, now referred to as the Elisabeth C. Miller Botanical Garden.
Elizabeth Carey Miller was born in Montana and attended the University of Washington. A word-renowned horticulturist, she was a member of twenty-five horticultural organizations and was instrumental in the creation of the Center for Urban Horticulture and the Elisabeth C. Miller Library at the University of Washington Botanical Gardens as well as the Seattle Chinese Garden. Miller was a founder of the Northwest Horticultural Society and an active member of the Garden Club of America and served on numerous boards and as a facilitator of civic projects.
Persons associated with the property include Elizabeth C. Miller (horticulturist and former owner, 1948-), John W. Fieker (sp?) (landscape designer, 1950-1907), Steven Blint (sp?) (landscape designer, 1958-1987), Daniel E. Lament (architect, date unknown).

Place:
Hofius Garden (Sequim, Washington)
United States of America -- Washington -- Clallam County -- Sequim
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and simple plot plans. The garden is noted for its success in growing perennials and grasses in a challenging environmental setting, as well as for the overall beauty of its site.
General:
This 15-acre site commands a 360-degree view, from the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the Olympic Mountains. This beautiful setting, however, is coupled with real gardening challenges. It is exposed to salt air and high winds, and was virtually devoid of trees when the garden was established in 1993. The water table is very high in winter, but drops in summer to near aridity. With these conditions and an annual rainfall of approximately 15 inches, the lushness of the garden has been a source of amazement to its owners. The garden boasts several long perennial borders, a fine collection of willows, a sizable collection of ornamental grasses, and is home to hundreds of birds, to the delight of the owners.
Persons associated with the property include: Douglas Hofius (architect); Robert Aujla (architect); Oehme, van Sweden & Associates, Inc. (landscape architects); and Oliver Strong (nurseryman).
