The Mary Livingston Ripley Garden, named for its donor, comprises more than 200 varieties of plants in hanging baskets, borders, and raised serpentine beds flanking an unusual curvilinear walkway designed by architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen. Plantings are augmented seasonally with annuals and exotics.
