  • About the Lilac Circle — Dumbarton Oaks
    for lilacs to be planted in the circular bed but the plants quickly failed due to the overwhelming shade in that corner of the garden In the 1944 Plant Book Farrand called for mock orange in the circle with lily of the valley and day lilies in the center bed The plants continued to struggle Alden Hopkins drew up designs in 1958 that converted to camellias The camellias grew well enough until severe winter weather in 1976 killed almost all of them Gardeners replanted and reinvigorated the camellia circle until the 1990s when a new hardy Korean lilac Miss Kim took a prominent position in the beds and returned the circle to its original state With the Miss Kim lilac as the backbone of the garden the rest of the plantings are now rotated seasonally While the plants in the Lilac Circle posed a challenge to Beatrix Farrand the ornament and furniture proved an easier task With close collaboration from Mildred Bliss Farrand designed a bench of oak and stone that complimented the stone column and finial placed opposite The column was topped with a carved urn which resembled an Armand Albert Rateau design Northeast of the Lilac Circle Farrand

  • About the Lovers' Lane Pool — Dumbarton Oaks
    and amphitheater marks the southern end of a vista that extends into Mélisande s Allée Built in 1927 28 on the site of a natural pond Beatrix Farrand s pool and theater designs drew inspiration from the Baroque Italian garden style She based the amphitheater on the Accademia degli Arcadi Bosco Parrasio in Rome although she noted that her turf and brick theater was steeper and smaller in scale Both aspects were dictated by the landscape of Dumbarton Oaks Farrand carried Italianate details around the perimeter of the garden room by building a screen of split wood lattice interspersed with cast stone columns She planted the lattice with creeping vines like honeysuckle ivy jasmine and kudzu to enclose the amphitheater and pool emphasizing a buffer between the garden and Lovers Lane For the coping and paving of the pool Farrand consulted with Mildred Bliss and chose to mimic Edith Wharton s reflecting pool at Pavillon Colombe In 1936 Beatrix Farrand s office designed a little niche and tablet to mark the southern entrance to the amphitheater A bronze statue of pipe playing Pan was placed on the tablet as a reference to the Arcadians who met at Accademia degli Arcadi
