“Rosemonde’s Garden” accepted into the Archives of American Gardens

Rosemonde Capomazza

For over 25 years, the GCA has partnered with the Smithsonian Archives of American Gardens to preserve the visual record and collective narrative of gardens. The NOTG Garden History & Design Committee submitted the documentation of Rosemonde Capomazza’s garden, and the proposal was accepted into the Archives of American Gardens of the Smithsonian in November.

“Rosemonde’s Garden” features a fountain and serpentine pool with an old brick deck and and backsplash. Musical cherubs are surrounded by a blanket of Camellia sasanqua. A lovely landscape design of numerous plant materials makes this garden a striking addition to the Smithsonian.
