General:
Raised rock berms, gravel and stone troughs were the planting beds of this vanished garden on an urban street, with a small lawn in the center of the backyard. Seeds for the bulb, perennial and cactus species planted with succulents, ground cover plants and dwarf conifers were collected by the owner in the alpine and steppe regions of the world. Regions included the American west, Turkey, western Asia, the Mediterranean, South Africa, Mexico and South America. Each species would have been adapted to its own native microclimate, and was shown to thrive in a rock garden in Denver's elevated altitude and hot, dry climate. Steppe plants tend to have silver, gray, hairy, spiny, waxy or leathery foliage and often brilliantly colored flowers, in this atypical garden. Several thousand species were propagated and sold by the owners through their business, Rocky Mountain Rare Plants. Also, the owner developed the Rock Alpine Garden at The Denver Botanic Garden, and grew and tested about 6,000 species of plants.
Persons associated with the garden include Panayoti Kelaidis and Gwen M. Moore (former owners).

Nutley -- Mountsier/ Hardie Gardens

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Mountsier/ Hardie Gardens (Nutley, New Jersey)
United States of America -- New Jersey -- Essex -- Nutley
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheet and photocopies of articles.
General:
Two suburban New Jersey gardens across the street from each other, behind conventional Colonial Revival houses, are linked by the friendship of the owners and their garden designer, Richard Hartlage. The Hardie garden features dense plantings of vividly colored tropicals and outsize grasses, most planted in containers to extend their outdoor growing season.The surrounding high wall was painted cobalt blue to bring the sky into the garden and to set up a contrast with the oranges, yellows and greens of the plants. The approximately 40-foot square plot slopes down seven feet from the back door to the colonnaded garage added in 1992, which led to the design and installation of this garden. Steps lead from the deck directly behind the house to another level with a dining table and chairs, with more steps leading to the hot tub concealed under a deck and garage where brick stands between the columns hold more planted containers. Sculptures on plinths and a decorative metal screen by artist Douglas Wilson have been sited among the plants.The exuberant back garden, which recalls the owner's South African roots, contrasts with the more sedate front garden where white caladiums, elephant's ears and ornamental grasses are planted in neat beds, referencing English Victorian carpet bedding.
The Mountsier garden has more conventional green spaces - open lawn, curvilinear lines and tall clipped hedges separating garden rooms. Starting with an inherited half-acre property smothered by overgrown rhododendron, pieris, and mountain laurel the owner gradually purchased adjacent properties and replaced those houses with smaller structures. Beginning in 1992 Hartlage designed the current 2.3 acre property to showcase more than 100 outdoor sculptures, some seen through openings in the high hedges. An eight-foot high lookout tower is camouflaged by clipped hornbeam, and a grove of Norway maples from an appended property is fronted by a 160-foot curving berm planted with four kinds of Japanese grasses. The front garden has star magnolias, Japanese snowbell trees and clipped American boxwood hedges.
Both gardens have participated in The Garden Conservancy's Open Days. There are no images of the Mountsier garden in this series.
Persons associated with the garden include: Richard Hartlage (garden designer, 1992- ).

Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Robert Wong Gardens (Glen Cove, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Nassau -- Glen Cove
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and a photocopy of an article.
General:
Many gardens utilize ornamental tropical plants for bedding or in seasonal containers. Since 2000 this small property, less than one-fifth acre in a northern residential neighborhood, has masses of enormous tropical plants growing as they would in their native climates, a practice known as "zone denial". These include banana plants that can be found at specialty nurseries, big-leaf taro from the grocers that roots much like sweet potatoes and sprouts huge black leaves, angel's trumpets with poisonous vanilla-scented flowers, and more conventional begonias, cannas and dahlias. Tropical and tender perennials do not survive cold winters out-of- doors. Some of the plants that are in colorful glazed containers from Vietnam are cut back and wintered over in a cold basement or greenhouse, rhizomes and tubers are dug up after the first frost and stored wrapped in damp paper, and banana plants are replaced each year.
Persons associated with the garden include Robert Wong (garden designer, 2000- ).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and a newspaper clipping.
General:
Located on approximately one-acre, this garden was established in the 1970s. Beginning with a rhododendron collection, it evolved into a garden with a series of outdoor rooms with each slowly unfolding with attention to unique colors combinations and compositions. Situated on a hilltop on the maritime peninsula of Little Compton, with good air circulation, this garden is enclosed with native hedgerows. High hedges and stone walls create a microclimate allowing many zone 7 plants to grow successfully. Other garden features include alleĢes, walkways, paths, and hedging which help guides visitors through the spaces.
Persons associated with the garden include: John A. Gwynne (landscape architect, 1970s).

Place:
United States -- North Carolina -- Orange -- Hillsborough
Montrose (Hillsborough, North Carolina)
Scope and Contents:
1 folder and 135 2 X 2.5" color transparencies.
General:
Four season gardening and propagating hard-to-find plants are the work of the owner of this 61-acre property with a 19th century house and outbuildings. The fall season from September into December brings more intense coloration to annuals and perennials while the gardener collects seeds, takes cuttings, divides and transplants perennials. In winter invasive trees and vines are pulled out of the woodlands and dead limbs are removed from the trees. The seeds that were collected are planted in little pots and kept in a cool, dark space for about six weeks then moved into a greenhouse for a year. In addition to the seedlings that are planted out in spring some are carried to new locations by the wind, mice or birds. There are 20 hillside wooded acres terraced in the 1930s that are the canvas for snowdrops, cyclamen, hellebores, primroses, crocus and other rare cultivars. Small groves of sabal palm, magnolia and sweetshrub were added to the mature trees. Sunny beds of flowers are grown on the site of the 19th century kitchen garden. Montrose has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 2001, is a preservation partner with the Garden Conservancy, and participated in an Historic North Carolina Garden tour.

Persons associated with the garden include: Kirkland (former owner, 1799- ); William A. and Susan Washington Graham and family members (former owners, 1842-1977); Thomas Paxton (landscape gardener, 1842).
