Scope and Contents:
The folders include a work sheet, copies of articles, copies of photographs by Mattie Edwards Hewitt, and features plan.
General:
This five-acre property is surrounded by twenty acres of preserved land containing wetlands, a stream, and pond. Elmwood includes a formal Ilex garden dating from the 1920s. The lower courtyard is framed by brick walls. One length of this garden is planted with heirloom lilacs, underplanted with perennial geraniums. A shade garden at the far end is planted with ferns, hellebores, astilbe, oak leaf hydrangea and is overhung by a large, flowering cherry tree. Framed by a pair of hornbeam trees, two antique marble statues of fanciful rams overlook a hill which blooms with Camassia and bluebells in the spring. Wisteria vines hang from the trees below. The pool garden is green and simple with lawn, a Japanese holly hedge and a natural stone wall dividing it from the cutting garden. The wall is planted on top with Nepeta and Rosa "Carefree Wonder." The cutting garden is planted with annuals such as zinnias, ageratum, cleome, and cosmos. A large, stately black walnut tree shades the corner of this garden.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: Thomas F. Youngs (former owner, 1836); Louis Comfort Tiffany (former owner, ? - 1910); Charles L. Tiffany (former owner, 1910-1947); Bushrod B. and Margaret C. Howard (former owners, 1947-1952); Lowrie Flagg (former owner, 1952-1993); Martha Brookes Hutcheson (landscape architect, 1911-1912); Mattie Edwards Hewitt (photographer, 1927); Schulz, Innocenti & Webel (landscape architects, 2000-present); and Tony Lepsis (garden designer, 1997-present).
