J. Allan Zabriskie Garden (Asheville, North Carolina)
United States of America -- North Carolina -- Buncombe County -- Asheville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, site plans, and other information.
General:
Located in the Biltmore Forest section of Asheville, this garden, established in 1962, was significantly altered and redesigned in the 1990s by J. Allan Zabriskie. A water feature with a streambed of rocks and a recirculating pool of water was added. Existing garden areas were replanted and a bank of plantings off the south side of the house was improved. These plantings have a natural appearance and include many native plants. Hemlock and rhododendron planted many years ago provide a screen between the house and its neighbors. Hemlock and oakleaf hydrangea are planted along the border between the lawn and the woodlands to the east of the property. The water feature and the bank to the right of it are planted with ferns, cathedral bells, dog hoble, dwarf evergreens, azaleas, boxwood, and maple. In the beds along the patio are shrubs such as holly, hydrangea, and dwarf fir, and perennials such as purple coneflower, balloon flower, and euphorbia. Some annuals such as zinnias and impatiens are added each year.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: the Biltmore Forest Company (former owner, before 1957); the Z. B. Robinson Construction Engineering Corporation (former owner, 1957-1960); Eugene J. and Dorothy Phillips (former owners, 1960-1961); All Souls Church (former owner, 1961-1998); Henry Gaines (architect, 1959); and J. Allan Zabriskie (landscape designer and gardener, 1998).

Nid de Papillon (East Hampton, New York)
Scope and Contents:
74 digital images (2020-2021).
General:
Nid de Papillion is located on the crest of the secondary dune within the Atlantic Double Dunes, a unique natural phenomenon stretching for two miles along East Hampton, New York's seashore. Established in 1918, the 7.79 acre property borders the golf course at the Maidstone Club, and features a historic oceanside garden, specimen trees, and meadows.

Today this unique garden is not easily categorized. It is significant as a rare survivor of the Great Estates era, but also for the current owners' having realized visionary design ideas overlaid on to the original 1918 historic garden plan.  Over the years they have made new additions to walls, brick paths and trails among other features, let alone elaborate plantings and a series of whimsical, named garden spaces.

The main house serves as a backdrop to the historic gardens which are designed to accommodate outdoors family gatherings. The oceanside grass terrace provides a view of an ever-changing panorama of dunescape and ocean. For quiet conversation, the Secret Garden features changing drifts of colorful flowering plants in two deep perennial borders along the brick walls. Historically, the Secret Garden's centerpiece was an Irish medieval church Christening font, now replaced by a swimming pool, in the Classic Roman style. The brick walls offer a sheltered growing environment where elsewhere in the landscape, winds off the ocean and salt air are destructive.

In front of the house, a large lawn is interrupted at the East near the long driveway with a balloon shape planting bed of annual and perennial flowering plants and two similar beds at West. At the edges of the property and either side near the front of the house are a few evergreen trees. The house is situated on a grass terrace system with a triple brick steps system leading up from the driveway.   On either side of the steps are two pairs of Alberta spruce providing emphasis to the enfilade up to the front door. On the lower terrace at driveway level, rows of Catawba rhododendron bushes make for a pretty display of blooms in early Spring. 

The large Tudor style house with a false thatched roof was designed by architect Frank Eaton Neuman (1877-1957) in 1917. Robert Appleton and his second wife Katherine (1877-1949) named their house and garden Nid de Papillon, French for Butterflies Nest. Historically the area was known for its annual swarm of Monarch butterflies migrating along the dunescape of Long Island because of the goldenrods that grew all the way to New York city.

Persons associated with the garden's design: Carol Margardina (pot designer for Larkspur and Thyme, 1985-), Catherine Warren (horticulturist for Broadview Gardens, 2011-), Craig Socia (designer for Craig Socia Design, 2012-), Victoria Fensterer (garden designer).
