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.
