Hide & Seek

(Page 4 of 4)

Aside from the vivid flowers and room-to-room design, it's the garden's overall immensity that Schoellkopf loves. Initially planted with a framework of august trees, shrubs and vines, the landscape has time on its side. "I love height," Schoellkopf says. "I like to feel small in a big garden."

Today, the Hollister House garden is a project of the Garden Conservancy and a charitable trust that will be preserved as a public garden. Currently, it can be visited as part of the Garden Conservancy's Open Days program. Considering that faithful garden lovers make the pilgrimage from abroad, local enthusiasts shouldn't hesitate to hotfoot over while the red garden is smoldering. No apologies necessary.

ENJOY GREAT DESIGN
