Their Distinctive Individuality
f "AT THE TIME of myl
arrival I thought this
the most dismal country
I had ever seen. I won
dered why I had come
and how quickly I could
get away. That was
six years ago,and I have
been here ever since !"
From a lady with whom I chatted for
a moment, came this same old story
which we who have known Pinehurst
from its earliest days have often heard.
What is the charm that holds people
here? What does Pinehurst' s success
mean? It means that the two men at
the helm, one who successfully con
ceived, one who is successfully directing
the destinies of the community, have
given it great distinctions. One dis
tinction only shall I touch upon the
of friends. Pinehurst home grounds, on
the other hand, have individuality as I
will recount, and herein lies one of their
great charms :
Arbutus Here is one of the largest
evergreen Indian Azalea plants in the
Village. ' It has magenta flowers of
the kind that is forced into flower in the
northern greenhouses in winter. Here
also is a northern mock orange syringa,
which is quite different from evergreen
mock orange, or laurel cherry of the
South, of which a good specimen is at
the west end of the General Office.
Arlington A fine northern mock
orange is here and a tree formed like a
Chinese privet at the piazza shows the.
picturesque possibilities that can be de
veloped in training this shrub. In the
roadside shrub belt opposite this lot are
very fine plants of the tall gall berry and
the red-;f ruited dogberry.
Beacon Here is one of the best Pho
tonias, a large leaved evergreen shrub of

TYPICAL COTTAGE SHRUIIHERY
I feel certain that the northern home
lot of the majority of Pinehurst winter
denizens is about as tame and subdued as
a company of soldiers at parade. In
dividuality would startle the neighbor
hood someone would talk. A pie shap
ed bed of raw dirt in winter and raw
color in summer, a lonesome shrub
with its head clipped off, a California pri
vet hedge is about the limit. Some in
dulge in gardeners who can distort the
pie shape into other shapes. Some sport
a greenhouse, some a pergola, and you
nearly all have a hydrangea and a
crimson rambler rose, but no wild plants,
not if you and your gardener know it !
Perhaps I am going back a few years
too many, for it is a fact that many
people have come to realize that their
granddads and mas did have some sense
when they not only cultivated gardens,
but swapped plants and garden stories
and had in abundtnce flowers to be pick
ed with their own hands from their own
garden, not sent from cold storage, for
invalids, for friends, for weddings and
to give fragrant tribute to the memory
the rose family, with white flowers and
a crimson growth of new foliage in
spring as brilliant as a flower. This
plant particularly enjovs Pinehurst con
ditions. Berkshire Here is the best com
mon lilac group, a plant of the matri
mony vine, fine Chinese wistarias, and
Lawson's Cypress, the last, a cone bear
ing evergreen, is very attractive up to
about fifteen years then begins to fail
Beech Some very good upright gold
en bell shrubs are here.
Bowling Alley Oranges in Pine
hurst are here in the best hardy orange
or thorn bush, in town." Fortunately,
the law of the Village prevents you from
picking flowers and fruit, so you may
not know how good they are.
Carolina About this, the most im
portant building, is the most notable col
lection of plants in the Village. In the
very shady inner court are fine speci
mens of the evergreen Loblolly Bay tree,
Rhododendrons, a rare dwarf bamboo,
(Bambusa ragamvuski), Ash berry or
