An American Garden: Native Plants in Regency Gardens
Speaker: Margery Winters
Organized by: JASNA CT
During the Regency period, landscape designer Humphry Repton sowed the seeds of the garden design elements that are still with us - terraces, gravel walks, flower gardens in the area around the house, and what would become the front lawn. His landscapes were known to include separate themed gardens rooms such as a rosary, a winter garden, or a Chinese garden. Most interestingly, Repton’s gardens also included an American garden which celebrated native American plants. We will explore how and why we should embrace this particular element of Regency garden design to bring abundant life and ecological health to our yards.
