Excursion: Peonies and Ladew's Topiaries
05/24/2016
7:00 AM
6:00 PM

Our two stops for the day were created by self-taught, motivatedindividuals. The first extraordinary garden belongs to Gail Gee. In2001, inspired by the work of landscape designer and author GordonHayward, Gail began to completely transform her 3-acre, mostly clay,suburban yard into colorful borders with perennials and bulbs, rareshrubs and trees, decorative arbors and gazebos, patios, stone paths,bright trellises bowered with clematis, and a stunning collection ofseveral hundred peonies including intersectionals (we hope to visitnear peak bloom!).

The entire garden is maintained organically. Our second stop willbe to Ladew Topiary Gardens in Monkton, Maryland for a guided gardentour. Harvey S. Ladew (1887-1976) created 15 thematic “garden rooms” on22 acres of his 250-acre Maryland property. It is a wonder thatHarvey, with no formal training and very little outside help, createdsuch a magnificent, living masterpiece. He also transformed the oldwhite farmhouse into the stately Manor House we will also tour. Travelby coach with Jeff Jabco and Julie Jenney. Bring your own lunch to haveon the bus. Limit 30.
