Beds of tulips are spread throughout this one acre property, with primarily yellow, red and white varieties planted in curving beds bordered by boxwood, in island beds within brick borders, and in containers that are perched on a brick wall. Three varieties of white azaleas, two rose varieties, quince flowering japonica, camellia japonica, hicks yew and aucuba shrubs are grown here as well. The red brick house was built in 1955 and the first gardens were planted then. Mature trees include magnolia, oak, holly, hackberry and elm, with Japanese maples and dogwood adding color. Statuary and figural planters depict stags, an American eagle, St Francis with three birds, and an Oriental dancer. Additional elements in the garden rooms include perennial and annual flowers, ferns, vines, large urns, a shell birdbath and birdhouses.
Persons associated with the garden include Noel David Pullam (garden designer, 1975); Casey Brownlow (garden designer, 1992); Wilhite Landscaping (landscaping, 1980); James Killabrew (architect).
