Crabapple Hill

For the hillside, Farrand suggested a mixture of a few species of crabapple, including Malus spectabilis, floribunda, and baccata, which would be allowed to grow to a fairly large size, but not so large as to become crowded. For the periphery she recommended deciduous shrubs such as Philadephus, Lonicera, and Ligustrum for edging and evergreens such as boxwood and hemlock for screening.

For the walk running parallel to the east wall of the North Vista, Farrand suggested beds of herbaceous plant material including daylily, peony, and iris.
