San Antonio -- Selig Garden

Selig Garden (San Antonio, Texas)
Scope and Contents:
13 digital images (2017-2018) and 1 file folder.
General:
The owner is a plant collector who has found ways to grow varieties not usually suited to the semi-tropical climate of San Antonio. After the 2007 purchase of the historic district Greek Revival stone house on a double city lot with one old sabal palm it took three years to develop non-traditional garden rooms in the four microclimates that comprise the property. An Australian grapefruit hedge, agave, other gray and silver desert plants, rosemary and cacti are planted along the sidewalk and in the front garden. At the end of the covered front porch sitting area there is a limestone obelisk focal point; an armillary sphere in the enclosed front garden is nearly hidden by rosemary that blooms from October until April. The gravel driveway is conceived as an allée bordered on both sides with prickly pear cactus and other xeric plants. Branching off at the end of the gravel there is a teak bench shaded by the neighbors' pecan trees and framed by large containers with clipped white oleanders along with boxwood, seasonal bulbs and tubers, beauty bushes, nandina, Leyland cypress, and a loquat tree. Another container and tropical garden lines the driveway to the parking area.

A kitchen garden behind the house on a paved patio has Meyer lemon, bay laurel, seating and many pots of herbs, perennials and white narcissus. An antique limestone and bronze sundial purchased in England is the focal point for another garden room outside the guest house/office. This is a tropical garden with varieties of banana, palm, fern, a Brazilian pepper tree, ginger and ground covers. The gardens on this property emphasize foliage, shape and scent rather than colorful flowers. Intense summer sun and heat, a yearly freeze and widely swinging temperatures have been mastered by planting clusters of tropicals, bulbs under flowering perennials, and herbs and vegetables in containers.

Persons associated with the garden include: Minnie and Susie Martinez (former owners, no dates given); Peter and Jocelyn Selig (owners, 2007- ).
