Varying Form:
Victorian Garden, formerly known as.
General:
The Enid A. Haupt Garden was dedicated on May 22, 1987. It is located between the Freer Gallery of Art and the Arts and Industries Building, and south of the Smithsonian Institution Building, commonly referred to as the Castle. This 4.3 acre area actually sits atop the Quadrangle complex - an underground facility made up of three Smithsonian museum spaces: the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the National Museum of African Art, and the S. Dillon Ripley Center. Above-ground kiosk entrances to the Sackler and African Art museums are located in the Haupt Garden itself. The Haupt Garden contains three discrete gardens within it: the Parterre, the Moongate Garden, and the Fountain Garden.
After the Castle's construction was completed in 1855, the area to its south became known as the South Yard. In 1887, it functioned as a zoo for bison to promote the conservation of their over-hunted population. The bison were moved to the newly-established National Zoological Park in 1889, and for nearly a century, the South Yard was home to a number of different buildings including the Aerodrome Shop, a solar radiation lab, a bug house (where beetles cleaned skeletal remains of animal specimens), temporary storage and collection buildings, a U.S. Army hangar, and a greenhouse and Quonset hut for the Office of Horticulture. In 1976, the Smithsonian's Office of Horticulture (now Smithsonian Gardens) planted the Victorian Garden parterre on the South Yard, in celebration of America's Bicentennial and to complement a Victoriana exhibition on horticulture in the adjacent Arts and Industries Building. This garden was inspired by a similar parterre made for the 1876 Centennial celebration in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1979, President Jimmy Carter authorized $500,000 for the planning and construction of the Quadrangle - an underground complex built in the South Yard - to house the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the National Museum of African Art, and the S. Dillon Ripley Center. In 1982, the Victorian Garden was removed. Construction on the Quadrangle spanned from June 21, 1983 to 1987. Architect Jean Paul Carlhian of the firm Shepley, Bulfinch, Richardson and Abbot was in charge of designing the Quadrangle complex which incorporated an initial design concept by Japanese architect Junzo Yoshimura.
Once basic construction was complete and soil returned to the ground-level (i.e. roof) of the Quadrangle, it was clear that there was more room for gardens beyond the reincorporated parterre. Smithsonian Secretary S. Dillon Ripley invited philanthropist Enid A. Haupt to tour the garden site, hoping Mrs. Haupt would finance a Zen garden west of the parterre. In fact, she financed the entire design and construction of the new garden with a $3 million endowment, stipulating that the garden be mature when it opened in 1987. With funds in place, work on the garden began, with the primary goal being to harmonize the stylistically varied buildings in and around the Quadrangle (the three entrance pavilions to the underground museums, the Smithsonian Castle, Freer Gallery of Art, and the Arts and Industries Building). The design of the garden was a collaborative effort between principal architect Jean Paul Carlhian, the landscape architectural firm Sasaki Associates, Inc., landscape architect Lester Collins, and James R. Buckler, Director of the Smithsonian's Office of Horticulture. Together they designed the three gardens described below.
Enid A. Haupt (1906-2005) was a publishing heiress and philanthropist who especially supported American horticulture. In addition to this garden, Mrs. Haupt's horticultural philanthropy created and/or preserved several renowned garden spaces including The Enid A. Haupt Glass Garden at the Howard A. Rusk Institute, NYU Medical Center in New York City; the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, New York; The Haupt Fountains on the Ellipse in Washington, D.C.; River Farm in Alexandria, Virginia; and The Cloisters in New York City. In 1994, the American Horticultural Society awarded her the Liberty Hyde Bailey award for her philanthropy.
The Parterre is the Victorian-style centerpiece of the Haupt Garden. It is a carefully manicured garden with a changing palette of colors and textures, laid out in symmetrical patterns that are redesigned every few seasons. Designs incorporate such motifs as diamonds, fleurs-de-lis, and scallops. While parterre is a French term meaning "on the ground," parterres as an ornamental garden style originated in 16th century Renaissance Italy.
The Moongate Garden is next to the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, and was inspired by the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, China. The Temple of Heaven was designed using a geometrical, axial layout, centered on the cardinal points of the compass. The Moongate Garden's dominant features are stone and water, which symbolize the body and spirit of the earth in Chinese culture. Two 9-foot-tall pink granite moon gates stand on the southwest and northeast corners of the garden; two more lie as benches in the opposite corners. A circular platform lies in the center of a granite-paved square pool, connected by bridges to each side of the square.
The Fountain Garden is next to the National Museum of African Art, and was modeled after the Court of the Lions at Alhambra, a 13th-century Moorish palace in Granada, Spain. As with most Islamic gardens, the Fountain Garden is symmetrical and includes a central fountain with four water channels. Respectively, these channels represent paradise itself, and the four rivers of paradise described in the Koran: water, milk, honey, and wine. At the garden's north end is a chadar - a patterned, sloping stone ramp that has water running down it.
The Renwick Gates are cast iron carriage gates at the garden's entrance on Independence Avenue. The gates were erected in 1979, based on an 1849 drawing by James Renwick, Jr., architect of the Castle. The design includes piers made of the same sandstone that went into the Castle's great reddish walls from a quarry in Seneca, Maryland.
A European linden tree once stood in the northeast corner of the South Yard. When construction on the Quadrangle began, Secretary Ripley directed that the tree remain unharmed. Construction personnel and arborists minded the tree, helping it live through the end of construction. However, it died of old age two years later, in 1989.
The Downing Urn was originally erected on the National Mall in 1856 in memory of landscape designer and horticulturist Andrew Jackson Downing (1815-1852). The urn was restored in 1972. In 1989, it was moved to where the linden tree had stood in the Haupt Garden.
Plantings include saucer magnolia (Magnolia x soulangeana), Wollemi pine (Wollemia nobilis), weeping Higan cherry (Prunus pendula 'Pendula Rosea'), golden shrimp plant (Pachystachys lutea), coneflower (Echinacea), dusty miller (Senecio cineraria), and pansy (Viola x wittrockiana).
Persons associated with the garden include: Enid A. Haupt (donor, 1987). Jean Paul Carlhian (principal architect, 1987). Lester Collins (landscape architect consultant, 1987). Constantine Seferlis (stonecarver, 1979). James Renwick Jr. (architect, 1849). James Goode (SI Castle keeper, design and construction supervisor, 1979-1987). S. Dillon Ripley (Smithsonian Secretary, 1964-1984). Michael Riordan (horticulturist, 1995- ).

United States of America -- Florida -- Palm Beach County -- Palm Beach
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information.
General:
This small garden on less than one-quarter acre has been under development since 1981. Previously the site had been planted primarily in tropicals. The current English/French inspired design divides the space into outdoor rooms, all beautifully manicured with boxwood hedges, flower borders, and a variety of small palm trees. Sculpture, planters, and fountains accent the garden spaces, which include a rose garden, a cutting garden, a "jungle path," and a half-moon-shaped garden at the front of the property. Despite its comparatively small dimensions, this garden provides a wealth of personality, charm, and diverse plant material.
Persons associated with the property include Elizabeth Thorndike (former owner, 1966-1970) and Giraud Van Nest Foster (former owner, 1970-1980).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans with plant names, copies of articles about the garden, and additional information provided by the garden owner.
General:
First planted in 1984, this small (1/3 acre), friendly garden is located on a winding little street in the midst of the many manicured and pristine gardens and lawns of University Park, directly across from the Dallas Country Club. It complements the site's Cape Cod-Norman French hybrid gray-shingled cottage with wide covered front porch, grey shingles, and blue shutters. Taking advantage of the east exposure in order to combat the wilting heat of Dallas summers, the design provides color year-round and features casual flower beds with a variety of heights, textures, and colors. The garden is famous for its spectacular display of blue hydrangeas, specimen trees, flowering trees, bulbs, perennials, annuals, and what its owner calls "old-fashioned flowers." Two large flower beds anchor the corners of the front yard. The arbor-covered back porch enables the owners and their guests to enjoy looking out on a small circular lawn and an adorable garden house. It reflects the encouragement that legendary gardener Rosemary Verey gave the owner during her two visits to the garden to plant more flowering vines for "vertical color."
Persons associated with the site include Rodger Burson (architect); Rosa Finsley (landscape architect); John Morelock (plantsman); Carl Neels (landscape architect and plantsman, 1990 to date); and Roberto Gonzalez (gardener, 1996 to date).

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of the shell mosaic interior of the grotto.
General:
The four-acre property described as a cool retreat in Dallas is shaded by a canopy of old native cedar elm trees and has a stone grotto built into an artificial hillside that was designed to add instant age. The new property, owned since 1982, has a stone circle fire pit overlooking Bachman Creek, a terraced rose and herb garden with gravel paths behind an ornamental iron gate, parterre gardens, a chicken coop, a dog kennel with a courtyard, a children's play yard and playhouse, and a rectangular swimming pool surrounded by another pool for koi. Other outbuildings include a cabana next to the pool, a dual purpose guest house and gym, and a greenhouse. The grotto is constructed of boulder outcroppings sheathed in fig vines with an elaborate shell mosaic in the interior and is used for dining. Along the driveway to the house there are dense plantings of mature trees, lawns and naturalized areas. Closer in the manicured lawns are divided by stone walkways and crossed by stepping stones. Color is provided by magnolias, azaleas, a wisteria trained up the house's exterior iron staircase, roses, tall bearded iris, jasmine and verbena. Seasonal plantings in the parterres and in urns on the bluestone terrace include pansies, begonias, caladium, pintas, periwinkle, daffodils and tulips. Low dry stone walls are used to delineate the different areas of the property.
Persons associated with the garden include: Paul Fields (landscape architect, 2008); Susan Grantham (landscape architect, 2008); Rosa Finsley (landscape architect, 2014); Matt Stevens of Texas Garden Services (landscape design, 2014); Connie Chantillis (shell mosaic artist, 2008); Watkins Ornamental Iron (fencing and gates, 2005).

Scope and Contents:
This folder includes plans, plant list for herb garden, tree inventory, plant list, garden description and worksheet done by GCA researcher Patricia M. Dunnington.
General:
"The land around the main house includes approximately fifteen acres of naturally and formally planned landscape. Naturalized areas feature a vast variety of ornamental and native Virginia trees and shrubs. Grelen features two planned gardens. The formal garden covers approximately two acres and is a four-level walled sunken garden. It is located to the west of the main house and can be approached through the mall-- a boxwood and hemlock tree lined lawn approximately 75 yards long (the garden is half way down the mall) - or from a blue stone walk leading from the back terrace. The top level is a tripartite formal space with brick walks leading to raised corner overlooks. The focal point is a brick paved overlook located on a central axis that runs through the garden and into the vista beyond. To either side of this overlook are brick stairways that lead to the lower levels."
"The second level of this garden features eight perennial beds, while the third and fourth levels are grassed. Opposite the garden entrance off the mall is a boxwood-lined mew with a millstone as the focal point. Specimen trees, including a Cedars of Lebanon, a Blue Atlas Cedar and a Deodora Cedar further accentuate this transept."
"The kitchen garden, a two-level 52' by 52' space on the east end of the house, is in line with the back terrace and the walk to the formal garden. This garden has a center circular bed surrounded by four corner sections and is divided into two levels by a stone retaining wall."
"Beyond the formally constructed garden, vistas were created by plantings of large hardwood trees. This technique was used on the mall, on the axis beyond the formal garden, and on the main drive up to the house. The front drive is bordered by tulip poplar trees and the edges of the front lawns are defined by the white pine trees. The mall uses boxwood for the vista close to the house, and then hemlock trees lead the eye on out toward the neighboring hillside. As one stands at the overlook in the formal gardens and faces cow pastures, a line of trees far beyond the fenced area carries the theme of cultivated grounds past the manicured lawns."
Persons associated with the property include: Mr. and Mrs. Will R. Gregg, Jr. (former owners, 1934-1990); Arthur Asahel Shurcliff (landscape architect, 1936-1940); John James (horticulturist in 1996); and Dan Gregg (nurseryman).
