lower garden and cutting garden furnished blooms and greenery for indoors. In
the cutting garden the Weltys planted annuals, both in fall for springtime blooms
and in spring for summer-hollyhocks, snapdragons, larkspur, ragged robins, zinnias,
cosmos, and many others.
from the edge of the lower garden to the back of the property is the woodland
garden, with mature pines and hardwoods towering over more camellias, spider lilies,
and oxblood lilies. The back border of the Welty garden is a thick canebrake planted
by Chestina Welty.
