Landscape plants – 1800s

Q: We have a home built in the 1800′s but would like to design with trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants used from 1900 – 1920. Can you give me a list of landscape plants for that period?

A: The Cherokee Garden Library at the Atlanta History Center serves as an educational resource center for those interested in Southern gardening, landscape design, garden history, and horticulture. The library is open Tues – Sat from 10:00 to 5:00. Admission to the library is free but plan to purchase tickets to tour the rest of the History Center, including the Tullie Smith Farm Gardens and the Swan Woods Trail.
