Garden C

Garden C – 811 West 58th St.
Preservation, restoration and inspiration describe the evolution of the garden in this 1917 built home. The home was
purchased from the original owner after 75 years of ownership. A process of restoring and removal of old plants and shrubs
resulted in an open space for the garden that always has something to catch the eye through texture, foliage, bark or bloom.
Shade lovers will appreciate the dogwood, hydrangeas, astible, peonies and hosta. Boxwood parterres and brick pathways
provide structure. Don’t miss the vintage garden art including a 1909 cockatoo from the KC Zoo, cast concrete elf from Mary
Rockwell Hook home and a Frank Lloyd Wright garden sprite. There are over 20 hosta cultivars along with weeping crabapple Luisa, Norway maple, dogwoods, Cherokee redbud and Japanese maple Inabe Shidare. Take your time to soak in the tranquility of this shady park-like gem.
