Among the many notable gardens created by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., and the Olmsted firm, the “Blue Garden,” designed for Arthur Curtiss and Harriet Parsons James, remains a unique expression of landscape art.The Blue Garden today has been reinterpreted into a palette of lower maintenance blue and white flowering shrubs, perennials, annuals, and vines — all of which ensure that the garden’s unique ambiance will be sustained. Tours are available by reservation for Thursdays from June to October 1.
