Digging Deeper: In Julie Newmar's Garden

Julie Newmar's Garden

The iconic actress Julie Newmar with Bradley James Bontems and Associates, Inc., have designed a modern cottage garden which complements Julie’s architectural house. Legendary for her wit and taste, the Tony and Golden Globe Award-winning actress has created a respite of garden rooms each offering unique surprises. Although the garden is of modest size, every available bit of space is utilized.  

Recently featured in Better Homes & Gardens in a piece by Garden Conservancy Board Member Stephen Orr, Julie’s garden is divided into a series of rooms. Each garden room has been carefully planned by Julie and others to provide constant interest for someone who uses her garden every day. Surprises abound with several "secret" gardens placed within many of the areas. The front cottage-inspired gardens contain many varieties of roses combined with shrubs, annuals, herbaceous perennials, and evergreens. The entry garden contains the luminous 'Julie Newmar' rose, a warm, apricot-rose blend. The back gardens contain the majority of Julie's large, extensive, and treasured begonia collection. All types, shapes, colors, sizes, and textures fill the spaces under the shady olive and chorizia trees. 

Julie has said that being on a Garden Conservancy tour is like winning an Oscar. In this very special Digging Deeper, meet with the minds that conceived of this special garden and continue to care and grow a garden as iconic as its owner. Don't miss this very rare opportunity to hear Julie speak about the garden she loves so much.
