Knoxville -- Lothrop Garden

Object Details

A palette of blues, yellows, whites, pinks, and lavenders invites one to stop, to study, to reflect, and to enjoy the beauty and serenity of a "seasoned" garden that has been developed and maintained over the last three and one-half decades by a horticulturist. The owner is a teacher, who has been the principal participant in designing, implementing, and nurturing beds of perennials, banks of flowering shrubs and ferns, and a meandering woodland garden. The perennial bed contains plants that create a variety of heights, tectures, color, and form. Many of the plants in this bed are made up of many gifts from family members and fellow gardeners.
A firm associated with the garden is Mountain View Nursery (helped with foundation plantings, 1965).
