  • Lanning Roper — Dumbarton Oaks
    war he returned to landscape architecture His work emphasized the English style of border gardens with an American twist or what the Oxford Companion to the Garden called a relaxed English style Roper often chose plants whose foliage followed a color scheme and he employed strong borders of boxwood to give his gardens bold and distinctive shape In the 1980s Prince Charles hired Roper to design the gardens for his newly purchased estate Highgrove but unfortunately the project never came to fruition Weakened by cancer Lanning Roper withdrew from professional pursuits in 1981 and in 1983 he died at his home in London Roper s connection to Dumbarton Oaks was one of mutual admiration He communicated warmly and professionally with Mildred Bliss and Beatrix Farrand whose curiously personal character he claimed drove the success of the gardens at Dumbarton Oaks In 1959 he wrote a complimentary article about their work for the Journal of the Royal Horticultural Society The Garden Archives contain correspondence about this article References Brown Jane Lanning Roper and his gardens London Weidenfeld Nicolson 1988 Higgins Adrian Remembering Garden Designer Lanning Roper The Washington Post May 16 2012 http www washingtonpost com lifestyle home remembering garden designer
