Type:
Archival materials
Place:
Robert Wong Gardens (Glen Cove, New York)
United States of America -- New York -- Nassau -- Glen Cove
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets and a photocopy of an article.
General:
Many gardens utilize ornamental tropical plants for bedding or in seasonal containers. Since 2000 this small property, less than one-fifth acre in a northern residential neighborhood, has masses of enormous tropical plants growing as they would in their native climates, a practice known as "zone denial". These include banana plants that can be found at specialty nurseries, big-leaf taro from the grocers that roots much like sweet potatoes and sprouts huge black leaves, angel's trumpets with poisonous vanilla-scented flowers, and more conventional begonias, cannas and dahlias. Tropical and tender perennials do not survive cold winters out-of- doors. Some of the plants that are in colorful glazed containers from Vietnam are cut back and wintered over in a cold basement or greenhouse, rhizomes and tubers are dug up after the first frost and stored wrapped in damp paper, and banana plants are replaced each year.
Persons associated with the garden include Robert Wong (garden designer, 2000- ).

The Braes (Glen Cove, New York)
Scope and Contents:
1 glass lantern slide and 3 35mm slides (2 reproductions from Nassau County Museum and 1 35mm copy of a lantern slide). 1 folder includes copies of excerpts from many publications.
General:
The approach to The Braes (Scottish for hillside) was lined with rows of large maple trees with under plantings of pachysandra and thickly interspersed with blue bells of scilla campanulata. Other plantings included Douglas firs clipped flat on the top and sides, a wisteria that climbed to the roof of the house, azaleas and pink dogwood on either side of brick steps leading down to an iris garden, superb boxwood, and an allee of hemlock. The garden featured several examples of sculpture by Paul Manship and bronze by A. Philminster Proctor. The formal terraced gardens were originally designed by James Greenleaf. Later, Isabella Pendelton made changes and designed the iris garden.

Persons associated with the garden include Herbert Pratt (former owner), Webb Institute for Naval Architecture (owner), James L. Greenleaf (landscape architect, 1912), James Brite (architect, 1912), Paul Manship (sculptor), A. Philminster Proctor (sculptor).
