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- ).

McDonald Garden, formerly known as.
General:
Since 1940 the gardens of this 1.75 acre property have been designed and filled with unusual specimen trees and flowering shrubs, then redesigned by a second owner equally committed to plant collecting who wanted to maintain the early gardens as much as possible. The initial design included a broad brick terrace behind the house that overlooked a sweeping lawn bordered by beds containing perennials, shrubs and trees. A rock garden marked the transition from the cultivated gardens to a native woodlands on the steep slope to the Willamette River. Behind the brick wall along the street there was a hedge of arborvitae and rhododendron had been planted along the brick wall at the far end of the terrace. A glass and brick gazebo stood in the front courtyard, topped with a hummingbird weather vane by sculptor Keith Jellum. When the property changed hands in 2002 all these features were changed too: the overgrown arborvitae were replaced with large-leafed boxwood, too tall rhododendron that blocked the view from the house were relocated, the crumbling gazebo was removed, and the hummingbird weathervane was mounted on a stand in an island bed of seasonal plantings where it can spin with the wind. The mature specimen trees including paper bark maple, Ponderosa pine, several varieties of magnolia, Garry oak, dawn redwood and a wheel tree remained but new beds were designed and planted with hellebores, hosta, fuchsias, clematis, rhododendrons, peonies, dwarf conifers and arum varieties. A new shade garden called the grotto replaced failing grass, a new green house and four bin composting center were built. The rock garden was augmented with steps and additional plantings, and wide gravel paths were laid for touring as well as working in the perennials beds that border the lawn.
Originally the 1.3 acres that were cultivated were conceived as parkland and featured rare plant material. A garden room in a warmer microclimate known as the Chilean garden was kept and included a windmill palm, swamp cypress and other semi-tropical plants; a crepe myrtle and pomegranate were espaliered on the garage wall along one side. Three copper bowl fountains of Greco-Roman design placed in the front and side courtyards were connected to a recirculating water pump in the basement of the house. The brick walls surrounding the terrace were perforated, a signature design of the original landscape architects Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver and the gazebo built on a curved brick wall in the front court was a stand-out feature. The parkland was planted so there would be open views from the house and terrace of Mount Saint Helens and the Willamette River.
Persons associated with the property include Sir James and Lady McDonald (former owners, 1940-2002); Susan and John Bates (former owners, 2002-2015); Elizabeth Lord (1887-1976) and Edith Schryver (1901-1984) (landscape architects, 1940); Ernest Tucker (landscape architect, 1977); Marsha Matschek (landscape designer, 1975- );Clark Matschek (landscape architect, 1996); Conrad Hahn (head gardener, 1950); Ernest Meyer (architect, 1942); Charles Voorhis (architect, 1977); John Storrs (architect, 1960); Echo Cole (head gardener, 1996- ); Gilbert Meigs (engineer, 1978); Jay Wesley Miner (garden designer and head gardener, 2006- ); Withey Price (garden design, 2004); Megan Galaher (garden designer, 2014); Martha Schneikert (steel garden structures, 2006); John Buttrell (tree pruning, 2006- ); Blake Thomas (tree pruning, 2006- ).

Place:
The Craighead House and Garden (Nashville, Tennessee)
United States of America -- Tennessee -- Davidson -- Nashville
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and other information.
General:
A natural wood picket fence along the street opens to a brick pathway through a shade garden and lawn with a contemporary sculpture, "Merging Steel" by Steve Bennyworth, ending at the front door of an historic Federal style brick house. Like other period homes there is no driveway between the house and the street. Fences enclose the entire one acre, with lushly planted deep borders around three distinct lawns, under the shade provided by mature trees. There are tropical plants in pots that are moved to a greenhouse in the winter, as well as flowering shrubs, vines and perennials. A circular brick terrace next to the house and several brick walkways were built from bricks made on the property by slaves in the 19th century, and are laid in "chicken grit" ground granite to protect the tree roots underneath. The foundation of the old kiln where the bricks were fired was discovered by a previous owner and converted into a water feature. In the service area at the rear of the property there is a kitchen garden for vegetables and herbs entered through an arch with espaliered pear trees. The greenhouse is located at the end of the pea gravel path, with a cutting garden for flowers as well as fruit trees and espaliered grapes on a toolshed nearby. Even the designated car park is utilized for beehives, blackberries, and pots of succulents.
The original four room Federal style brick house built circa 1810 has been significantly enlarged by subsequent owners, and the 194 acre farm that comprised the original property has been reduced to a one-acre lot in an historic Nashville subdivision. Earlier gardens were laid out by a previous owner, Frances Moore Ewald, and have been redesigned starting in 1998. The house and gardens are frequently opened for tours and entertaining. Craighead House is listed on the Tennessee Register of Historic Places, is included in the Tennessee conservation easement program through Historic Nashville, and won an architectural award from the Historical Commission of Metropolitan Nashville-Davidson County in 1999. One of the hackberry trees in the garden won first place in a Nashville big old tree contest in 2000.
Persons associated with the garden include: John Brown Craighead and family members (former owner, 1818-1890); Samuel A. Murphy (former owner, 1890 -1905); Richland Realty company (former owner and sub-divider of property, 1905-1914); W.E. and Sarah Watson (former owners, 1914-1915); Homer T. Derryberry (former owner, 1915-1934); Bonnie A. McGraw (former owner, 1934-1954); Jack and Sarah Gillaspy (former owners, 1954-1957); W.E. and Frances Moore Ewald (former owners, 1957-1971); John and Ann Nixon (former owners, 1971-1973); Dr. and Mrs. George V. Mann (former owner, 1973-1997); Carl Hasty (former owner, 1997-1998); Steve Bennyworth (sculptor, 1998); Bill Ralston (sculptor, 1996, 1999); Steve Sirls (garden designer, 1998-present)

United States of America -- Florida -- Volusia -- Daytona Beach
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and historical information.
General:
The red brick house was built in the 1950s and modeled after the governor's palace in Williamsburg, Virginia, which inspired the current owners in 1994 to install gardens with both southern and tropical plants and features on the four acre property Toronito. There are 200 year old Live Oak trees dripping with Spanish moss shading much of the property so the plant selection had to succeed in filtered shade, with some sunny locations including a rose garden. From the brick terrace with a round leaded glass window set into the wall supporting the gate there are views of the formal serpentine border planted with jasmine, sago palms, tea roses and conifers, and other formal beds contain caladium and agapanthus. The area known as the shade garden contains holly fern, iris and sago palm. A small orchard has pecan, fig and Meyer lemon trees. Throughout the property there are brick walkways that co-ordinate with the formal style of the planted beds and containers on the brick patio. The Halifax River runs alongside the property and is reached by walkways that divide around a sculpture of Poseidon, himself surrounded by a clipped circular hedge. In addition to the main house there is a guest house, garage, pool and garden shed where container plants are wintered over.
Toronito is a Seminole name meaning sunshine and goodwill, and Toronito's crest has been placed over the English colonial style front door of this house. There is a local legend about Princess Toronito who avenged the death of her French father at the hands of the Spanish settlers by siding with and helping the British explorer Sir Francis Drake defeat the Spanish in the 16th century.
Persons associated witht he garden include: Dr. and Mrs. Dwight Harris (former owners, 1950-1966); Mr. And Mrs. Paul H. Gugger (former owners, 1966-1986); Mr. and Mrs. R.T. Ayers (former owners, 1986-1991); Harry Griffin (architect, 1953-1954); Joe Knight, ASLA (landscape architect, 1994).
